Trunk or Treat so People Can Eat – 2011

Spread the love

Well Halloween is over and our big event last week has wrapped up! If you are not local you might be wondering what we are talking about. Last week we helped put on the Trunk or Treat so People Can Eat 2011 promotion. The main goal was to raise food through donations to donate to the Idaho Food Bank. We had hoped for a couple barrels of food and about 300 people. With the help of Ken and Jeff from Stevens Henagar it turned out much bigger then we could of ever planned for.  There ended up that over 4000 people showed up. Needless to say the candy supply was running short, still everyone got some! But all and all we had tons of food donated, people seemed to be so happy and having fun!
