Last Saturday, an absolutely gorgeous day for the 23rd annual Pumpkin Patch, held on Saturday, Oct. 19th, netted over $4000- to support ESCCA (Evanston School Children’s Clothing Association). ESCCA has been around since the Great Depression and provides over 600 needy K-8 children with complete school wardrobes, coats, shoes and boots every year. Since Coldwell Banker sponsors the event and generously donates the pumpkins to ESCCA, 100% of the pumpkin sales go directly to the purchase of new jeans, shoes and underwear for the children. ESCCA is an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. Donations of any type, clothing or monetary are always welcome and greatly appreciated. Contact ESCCA at escca.org.
