Trunk or Treat lets kids give back to local families.

As mid October rolls in, student council prepares for Halloween with Trunk or Treat. They organize this annual event to help give back to the community.

“The purpose is to raise essentials for families in need, so the more people come the better,” student council sponsor Adam Babich said.

The cost of admission is four non-perishable food items, toiletries, or some clothes in a plastic bag. These items will be donated to local families who are struggling. All items are donated to the Hill Country Ministries Food Bank.

“We want to raise canned foods and necessities for local families in need during the holiday season,” Babich said.

Once community members gain admission, they will be presented with a parade of clubs, each with a decorated car and interactive activity for the kids to play. The robotics club made a special attraction for the occasion. Sophomore Maddie Cox and junior Kristen Grimm helped with the process.

“Over the summer we made a carnival game,” Cox said. “Its a ring that moves and you throw footballs through it. We also have a robot costume and the person in it will be doing the robot.”

If a club is interested in participating in Trunk or Treat, they need to email Babich for a parking space assignment.

“We’re in the last call phase right now, but there are always a few spots left for last minute sign ups,” Babich said. “If a club wants to join they just get in contact with me.”

Trunk or Treat will be held on Oct. 26 from 1 to 5 p.m. and will be in the school’s front parking lot.
