The Holy Cross Pumpkin Patch is back for its tenth year in downtown Simpsonville                                         

The pumpkin patch was started a decade ago as a ministry of Holy Cross Episcopal Church to support a Habitat for Humanity build but the church says it has grown to provide funding for additional nonprofits and ministry partners across the Upstate. The patch has raised $180,000 in its 10-year history, and the church said it has donated 100 percent of those profits to local charities.

Proceeds from the 2016 season will benefit Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County, Fountain Inn Kids Enrichment, Holy Cross Academy Scholarship Fund, James Monroe Mission House, Little Steps, Safe Harbor, Synergy Garden, Upstate Warrior Solution, Greenville Literacy Association and Golden Strip Emergency Relief.

“We are proud that our patch has grown to benefit multiple ministry partners in each season,” said Randy Cockrill, patch director. “Our selection and variety of products is unmatched in the area, and we look forward to serving our community again in 2016.”

The patch is located at 109 W. Trade Street in front of Vaughn’s Country Store. Hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 12 to 6 p.m. The patch accepts cash, checks, and major credit cards.
