Providing food, shelter, help, and hope to Missoula, Montana’s homeless and underserved.

Pumpkins for the Pov

The Poverello Center provides food, shelter, help and hope to our community members living in poverty.

Pumpkins with a Purpose:

Joseph Preston has lived in the Missoula area for over 15 years. This Spring he hit some hard times and found himself homeless. This was around the same time that the Pov experienced our plumbing issues. Joseph became a leader, within the resident community of the Poverello Center, helping to make sure the kitchen stayed open while we worked to fix our plumbing issues. Specifically, he took leadership of the dishwashing area ensuring that we always had someone there washing dishes and keeping that vital area in tip-top shape.

With each pumpkin, you purchase you can help someone like Joseph get back up on their feet. Because of our sponsors, every dollar of your pumpkin purchase goes toward the Poverello Center’s food programs.
