Pumpkin Patch Fundraiser Fun

Pumpkin Patch Fundraiser – Volunteers Needed

We have an exciting opportunity to help out at McCall’s Pumpkin Patch in Moriarty and help raise money for our upcoming Thanksgiving Food Box project this year! 

On Oct 21 and 22nd from 10am to 6pm, Help Equals Hope will be general volunteers working as needed  in various areas throughout the Pumpkin Patch.

Fun loving volunteers can sign up now.  We are limited to 20 volunteers per shift, so if you’d like to volunteer with friends, please sign up together as soon as you can.  The more slots we have covered, the more money we’ll make so feel free to sign up for more than one shift if you’d like.

Volunteers will check in at the main gate office 5 minutes before the start of their shift and will be assigned to tasks as needed by the Pumpkin Patch staff.

This is a great way to have a fun time and to help raise money to feed New Mexico families at Thanksgiving!  See you there!

Location: McCall’s Pumpkin Patch, 34 McCall Ln, Moriarty, New Mexico 87035

Hope to you see you all on Monday 8/7 to help New Mexico kids!


We need some volunteers from approximately 7:30-9:00pm  to help clean up the parish hall as well as return supplies and equipment back to storage unit.  If you can help, please do so our hardworking crew won’t have to stay as late this year.
