Oftentimes nonprofits will seek donations of money, clothes or toys. But in this case, an organization that helps refugee families is looking for pumpkins.
The group needs 30 medium-sized pumpkins for a carving and painting activity during a Friday Halloween party.
Pumpkins can be dropped off at the IRC office, located at 2305 Parklake Drive NE, by Thursday at 5 p.m.
Anyone who holds a drive to collect multiple pumpkins can contact IRC and arrange for the items to be picked up.
Monetary donations can be made online here. The IRC provides employment opportunities, counseling and English language instruction to refugees who have been granted sanctuary in the United States.
