Pumpkins With a Purpose
Welcome House of South County has provided emergency and transitional housing to homeless individuals & families from our local area for almost 30 years. They run a daily soup kitchen which is open to the public. Every October PDCC sponsors a pumpkin sale at the church. A tractor trailer load of pumpkins, grown on an Indian Reservation, are delivered to the church and sold throughout the month of October. The church gets 35% of the money from the sales and 100% of any donations. We have been able to collect and donate an average of $10,000 to Welcome House each year.
