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.

The Pumpkins for the Pov Puzzle

Because of COVID-19 we will not be able to do any of our Pop-Up Pumpkin Parties this year. However, to keep having some pumpkin fun while social distancing, the Poverello Center is partnering with TownSquare Media on the Pumpkins for the Pov Puzzle. Each week there will be a question about homelessness in our community asked on TownSquare Media radio stations. You can find the answer to these questions at the Pumpkins for the Pov sales locations to by ordering you pumpkin online.
