Scarring up food

Ladysmith students heading out on Halloween to collect food items

A group of Ladysmith students will be trick or treating this year.

 

It may not seem out of the ordinary, but instead of treats, these students are looking for donations to the food bank.

 

The idea of Halloween for Hunger to support Free the Children was spurred by Keauna Miller and snowballed to include a good cross-section of students who will be taking to the streets on Oct. 31.

 

“We are asking for canned food items instead of candy to go to the local food bank,” said Miller.

 

Miller said the finer details have not been hammered out, but the students are planning on hitting the streets prior to the regular trick-or-treat crowd, likely in the Colonia Drive area. The neighbourhoods they can reach will depend on the number of volunteers.

 

Miller said the homes they will be canvassing will be notified ahead of time so they can prepare.

 

This is the first year for the food-raiser and the students have not set any goals.

 

The students said people wishing to drop off food, even if canvassers do not make it to their house, can drop off donations at the school.
