Trick or Treat So Others May Eat is an annual food drive we hold during the month of October. During the week of October 14th, groups of youth from all over Rowan County will place grocery bags with their name and a description of the event on the porch or doorstep of homes in certain neighborhoods. Residents are encouraged to fill the bag with whatever non-perishable goods they can and the youth will be back to collect the bag on the date specified on their bags. On October 22nd between 3:00-5:00pm, the groups will join us at the parking lot of Jeannie's Kitchen/The Shelter (217 North Long Street) to weigh their collections and have a pizza party. Winners will receive a trophy, but all will experience the joy of giving back to our community & those in need. Plaques will be awarded to groups that can collect 500, 1,000, and 1,500 pounds & over.
Last year, Neel Road Baptist Church youth group collected 1,700 pounds worth of food. Let's see if we can beat last years record!
Those who cannot leave bags on doorsteps are encouraged to hold a private drive at their church, work, or school in lieu of collecting from neighborhoods. Specify the location of your drive under "Requested Neighborhood" if you are not able to go door-to-door.
*Collection must be received no later than 11/5 in order to be eligible for trophy.
