Jeffco Interfaith Partners, a fundraising coalition for Habitat for Humanity is operating their pumpkin patch at the corner of Garrison Street and Alameda Avenue in Lakewood for the 22nd year in a row.

According to Tom Brunn, the group’s chairperson, since 1998, they’ve funded the building of 21 homes. 

Brunn said thirty-three volunteers spent 3 hours unloading this season’s first shipment, which included 2400 large pumpkins.
