LUM Students Visit the Great Pumpkin Patch


Halloween Fun for the LUM Students


During the month of October, the students enrolled in the LUM After School Program have been visiting the Great Pumpkin Patch sponsored by Congress Street United Methodist Church. The Great Pumpkin Patch gives our students a Halloween “farm” experience without leaving the city.

It’s extra special this year because a portion of the proceeds from the Great Pumpkin Patch will be donated to Hunger Hike. If you wish to volunteer at the Great Pumpkin Patch, click HERE. The more volunteers we recruit — the more is donated to Hunger Hike.

If you wish to invest in the students enrolled in the LUM After School Program, click below.
