Trick-or-Eat on Halloween in Lockeport
This Halloween, in the afternoon, students at Lockeport Regional High School will be going door to door in anticipation of gaining more than just sweets.
In order to help supplement local food banks students will be going door to door in the areas serviced by LRHS to ask the community for donations of non-perishable items.
The project was headed by substitute teacher Nissel deMolitor, who said that while this is a first for Lockeport, she herself had participated in a similar food drive while at university.
Student parliament at the high school have taken the initiative to be the first to sign up to volunteer going door to door during the afternoon on Oct. 31 and many other students have also signed on.
FRA students taking part in We Scare Hunger
Once again this year Jade Newell, a grade four student at Forest Ridge Academy, will be encouraging her fellow classmates and students to take part in Free the Children's We Scare Hunger Campaign.
The students will be collecting nonperishable food items along their usual Halloween routes, in order to stock the local food bank. Food bank items collected can be dropped off at FRA until Nov. 5, when they will be weighed and then delivered to the local food bank. On Oct. 31, people can help these students fill their bags with canned goods to help support your local food bank and raise awareness about local hunger.
