It's Pumpkins for the Pov time! Halloween is coming up and each year, a generous Missoula farmer donates his pumpkin harvest to raise thousands of dollars for Missoula's Poverello Center. And typically, we team up with them and invite you out to various locations to buy your pumpkin, but with the pandemic year, we will be delivering right to your doorstep! Huge thanks to the awesome peeps at Blackfoot Communications for also helping to make Pumpkins for the Pov possible this year.

When ordering online, you are still able to choose the size, color and shape of the pumpkin you desire, and you'll receive it on the following Saturday through contactless delivery by our staff here at the radio station, along with awesome employees from Parkside Credit Union! Order online HERE.

And, guess what, we've got some prizes for you, too! A $250 gift card from Blackfoot Communications, bags of Hunter Bay coffee and t-shirts from Alt 101.5 and SO much more. You'll see "Pov Pumpkin Puzzles" at all of the locations that Pov pumpkins are available, they will have the answers to text to any of our free radio station apps. So grab those answers and text them to us through your Alt 101.5, 96.3 The Blaze, 94.9 KYSS FM or 107.5 Zoo FM apps for a chance to win some fun prizes.

If you'd like to buy a pumpkin while you're out and about, they are now available at the Good Food Store, Rattlesnake Market, the YMCA, Imagine Nation Brewing and The Trough. All pumpkins of any size and shape are $10, and ALL proceeds benefit the Poverello Center's food and shelter programs. Thank you in advance and Happy Halloween!

Joseph Preston has lived in the Missoula area for over 15 years. This Spring he hit some hard times and found himself homeless. This was around the same time that the Pov experienced our plumbing issues. Joseph became a leader, within the resident community of the Poverello Center, helping to make sure the kitchen stayed open while we worked to fix our plumbing issues. Specifically, he took leadership of the dishwashing area ensuring that we always had someone there washing dishes and keeping that vital area in tip-top shape.

With each pumpkin, you purchase you can help someone like Joseph get back up on their feet. Because of our sponsors, every dollar of your pumpkin purchase goes toward the Poverello Center’s food programs.
