A pumpkin patch in Fishersville helps kids in Haiti, one pumpkin at a time.
It is the fourth year Tinkling Spring Presbyterian Church has run the Pumpkins for Haiti pumpkin patch. The church has partnered with a parish in Haiti for 20 years.
Half of the money the church makes will go to support schools in Haiti. The other half goes to help support mission trips there.
"We've helped develop a school, which was destroyed during the earthquake several years ago. We're trying to send money to rebuild that school to educate the children," said volunteer and church member Lyle Moffett. "The poverty in Haiti is so awful. We just feel like it's a call of this church to help where there's a need."
The pumpkin patch is open seven days a week through the end of the month.
