Come out and pick your perfect pumpkin, and get photographed for free during the food drive benefiting the Second Harvest Food Bank at the St. Martin’s Episcopal Church Pumpkin Patch. While monetary donations or donations of non-perishable food items will be gladly accepted, they are not required to receive a photograph. We will be on hand to create free commemorative photos of children and families during their visit. The participants’ photos will be inset into a Halloween themed template and delivered via email. Photographs will be taken October 18th from 3:00pm until 6:00pm and on October 20th from 11:00am until 5:00pm.
Last year, we photographed 70 families, and our efforts resulted in donations of $492 and 86 pounds of food collected. That’s 1,548 meals provided to the community. Our goal for 2019 is to help them raise enough funds and non-perishable food to provide in excess of 1,600 meals.
