RIVERTON — Children with disabilities at the Kauri Sue Hamilton School received pumpkins from prison inmates on Monday.

More than 3,500 pumpkins harvested, gathered, and cleaned by Utah State Prison inmates are being donated to various organizations that serve children in the community.

The inmates in the Utah State Prison's greenhouse program harvest the pumpkins annually from early June to mid-October, largely using pumpkin seeds donated by Mountain Valley Seeds.
