Pumpkin Patch

Since the first St. Thomas' pumpkin patch in 2008 we have raised and donated over $40,000 to  local charities. Our pumpkins are grown and harvested on Navajo reservations in Northern New Mexico. Please click  here  if you would like to know more about our pumpkins. ALL proceeds from pumpkin sales are donated to the local charities listed at the bottom of this page.
  

Our 2017 unloading will be on Columbus Day weekend.

Unloading is rain or shine.

We hope that many 8th graders (supervised/assisted by parishioners) will help unload the truck. We anticipate unloading will take between 2 and 3 hours.

If you are an 8th grader looking for 2-3 hours of community service hours - please sign up to help unload pumpkins!
 

We also need parishioner volunteers to help sell them for the rest of the month. Sales are Sun - Fri 11-7 PM, Sat 10-6 PM. Time slots are for 2 hours.
 

Lastly, on Saturday November 4th from 10 AM to 12 PM we will reload our leftover pumpkins to help feed the animals at Rikki's Refuge (a non-kill animal sanctuary located in Orange,VA). This effort is eligible for approx. 2 hours of 8th grade community service.
