Great Pumpkin Fun in Alexandria
In what has become a local tradition for the past two decades, Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill will again offer pumpkins, gourds and seasonal foods for sale in support of the charitable programs the parish supports.
More than 20 non-profit organizations benefit from the proceeds from the pumpkin sale, including numerous Alexandria causes such as ALIVE, Carpenter's Shelter, Community Lodgings, and Child and Family Network Centers. International charities include Five Talents and the Haiti Micah Project. ALL profits go for charitable purposes.
The pumpkins are grown on the Navajo Indian Reservation in New Mexico and are distributed and consigned to Immanuel and over 1,300 other churches of various denominations throughout the country. These partnerships support over 300 jobs on the reservation and the programs of participating churches nationwide.
Autumn crafts and cookies, brownies, cake, candy, hearty soups, gourds, mini pumpkins, and apple crisps are also available.
Hours of operation are from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. every day, October 5 - October 31.
10:00 AM - 8:00 PM
