FISHERSVILLE, Va -- For the past three years, Tinkling Springs Presbyterian Church has donated money and time to the people of Haiti and their annual pumpkin patch is one of the biggest fundraisers for that effort.

Half the money raised goes to the Haiti Education Foundation, and the other half goes towards the church's medical mission in Haiti.

This year is a little different.

In order to be able to donate the most money to the effort, the church is getting their pumpkins from a local source in Weyers Cave. The pumpkins used to come from New Mexico.

The church hopes to sell around 1,000 pumpkins and raise $3,000 to $4,000.

Volunteers are manning the pumpkin patch from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. everyday.
