Missoula, MT – Join us for this year’s Pumpkins for the Pov Pop-up Event, sponsored by Townsquare Media! Buy one locally grown, organic pumpkin and donate a second pumpkin at this year’s Pumpkins for the Pov Pop-up Sales Event on Saturday, October 16th at 3250 S Reserve St. from 10-4pm.
For every pumpkin purchased at the 2021 Pumpkin Pop-up Sales Event on October 16th the Poverello Center will donate a pumpkin to children or families staying at shelters around town or using the Missoula Community Center and Food Bank. This way, participants will be donating to the Poverello Center Food Programs as well as making sure children and families using the services at the Meadowlark Family Shelter, Watson’s Children Shelter,  Mountain Home and the Food Bank all get a pumpkin this year.
“When you buy one pumpkin and donate another to a child who may not otherwise get to carve a jack-o-lantern this year, you are not only donating to that cause. You are also helping the Pov offer food to all who ask,” Executive Director Jill Bonny said.
Blackfoot Communications is the primary sponsor of Pumpkins for the Pov and Townsquare Media is the Pop-up Event sponsor.
Pumpkins will also be available for purchase throughout October at our sale locations: the Good Food Store at 1600 S 3rd St W, Rattlesnake Market at 2501 Rattlesnake Dr., YMCA Missoula at 3000 S Russell St, Imagine Nation Brewery at 1151 W Broadway St, The Trough at 2106 Clements Rd, and Parkside Credit Union Locations: 320 W Broadway St, 4055 Brooks St, and 2300 Great Northern Ave.
For more than 45 years, the Poverello Center has provided a necessary safety net of food and shelter for people in and around Missoula who face hunger and homelessness. Visit pumpkinsforthepov.org to learn more.
