Project Pumpkin

Project Pumpkin

Project Pumpkin is the signature student-led service event that was started at Wake Forest in 1988 to bring together the campus and Winston-Salem communities. Each year more than 1,000 children from local schools and agencies are escorted to Hearn Plaza where students, faculty and staff collaborate to provide a safe and fun environment for kids to experience trick-or-treating, carnival games, clowns, entertainment as well as educational activities.
