The pumpkin patch in the Coldwell Banker parking lot at 2929 Central Street will support the Evanston School Children’s Clothing Association. This 22nd annual Pumpkin Patch sale fundraiser will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on  Oct. 13th. There will be hundreds of pumpkins to choose from at prices competitive with the grocery stores and farmers’ markets. Balloons, face painting and refreshments will also be available.

ESCCA has been around since the Great Depression and provides more than 600 K-8 children with complete school wardrobes, coats, shoes and boots every year.

Since Coldwell Banker donates the pumpkins to ESCCA, 100 percent of the pumpkin sales go directly to the purchase of new jeans, shoes and underwear for the children. ESCCA is an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. Donations of any type, clothing or monetary are always welcome and greatly appreciated.
