Golden Real Estate is happy once again to support the Habitat for Humanity pumpkin patches in Lakewood and Arvada. The Lakewood patch is at Garrison Street & Alameda Avenue, on the grounds of Mile Hi Church. The Arvada patch is on the grounds of Trinity Presbyterian Church at 78th Avenue & Wadsworth Blvd. Our thanks go to these two churches for providing great locations for this fundraiser.
Both pumpkin patches are operated each year by Jeffco Interfaith Partners, a coalition of a dozen local faith groups. The profits from these two volunteer-manned patches have funded over 20 Habitat for Humanity homes in the metro area over the past 2+ decades.
The pumpkins are grown on a Navajo reservation in the Four Corners area, so the sales also benefit that community, which gets 60% of the proceeds. Habitat gets the other 40%.
Yes, the pumpkins sold at our two patches may be more expensive than at your local supermarket, but you have the satisfaction of making a difference with every purchase, and the 40% of your purchase which goes to Habitat is tax deductible. Ask for the tax receipt.
