It’s the great pumpkin delivery, Charlie Brown! The Marion Correctional Institution is continuing their annual tradition of pumpkin deliveries just in time for Halloween.

Officials with Marion Correctional Institution delivered pumpkins on Friday, October 22, to Richland County Children Services (RCCS).

RCCS distributes them to the children and families served by the agency. The idea for donating the pumpkins, grown by inmates at the facility, was the idea of an instructor who taught farming to the inmates. Agriculture Instructor, Jonathan Barrett, said the pumpkins are donated to various facilities throughout Ohio including Richland County Children Services.
