Each registrant receives a small pumpkin from Al’s Pumpkin Patch, a route map and magnet to commemorate their journey and contribution to FSS. The cost per registrant is $35.00. Route stops arelocated throughout Vint Hill, Warrenton, The Plains and Marshall as well as some outlying stops.

Family Shelter Services – formerly Fauquier Family Shelter Services – is a private non-profit organization operating a 52-bed emergency homeless shelter in Warrenton and 24-unit  ransitional housing in VintHill that helps nearly 400 people annually. As FSS receives no state or federal funding and relies primarily on community giving, we need support now more than ever.
