PUMPKIN PATCH 2018 is COMING UP FAST!
Last year's first-ever pumpkin patch raised more the $4000 for the church and helped us connect with folks in the neighborhoods around us--and with other UCCAustin members.
The Patch returns this year, October 13-31, and we’re taking it to the next level, including hosting a trunk-or-treat for kids from the church and our neighborhood, so we’ll need as many helping hands as possible.
From Co-Coordinators, Meghan Trout and Diane Baker:
We need pallets! If you have a truck and can haul some pallets to the church, please email email@example.com and we'll contact you with places to pick them up. If you know where to get some, feel free to bring them and drop them in the parking lot next to the church sign.
We need wagons! We need wagons that folks can use to help unload pumpkins, as well as wagons available for folks to use as they shop the patch. If you have a wagon we can borrow from 10/11-11/1, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll contact you!
We need folks to help unload the pumpkins! If you are available to help unload pumpkins from the truck on Friday, October 12 at 4pm. CHILDCARE WILL BE AVAILABLE! Please sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0c48acac2aa1fa7-unload
We need folks to sell pumpkins! If you are available to sell pumpkins anytime from 10/13-10/31, please sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/…/70a0c48acac2aa1fa7-uccpumpkin
Important note on the sales sign ups: This year we've asked committees and groups of the church to take ownership of dates. What does this mean? It means anyone can sell pumpkins any day they want, but if you want to plug in with a specific group, look for the group owner in the comment lines of the sign up sheet. Groups who claim a day can also add a donation jar to the sales table....all pumpkin sales go to the general fund, but donations collected (probably even more collected if you add games or activities) will go to your group's desired beneficiary (i.e. Bethany Food Pantry, OutYouth Austin, General Fund, Choir Music, Youth Mission Trip, Central Texas Food Band....whatever your group chooses). Just remember, you don't have to be plugged in with that group to sell on that date, anyone can sell on any date. As to group date ownership....there are still "unowned dates" if any shepherding group or other church group would like to claim a date, just please email email@example.com and we'll contact you!
