HHS groups to trick-or-treat for canned goods
The Hartselle High School Student Government Association and Ambassadors will be trick or treating for a good cause Monday night at various subdivisions in Hartselle.
The treats for the students will be canned and non-perishable food instead of candy.
Karen Howell, one of the SGA sponsors, said this event is part of the Caring Day food drive hosted by the city.
“Our students will be out trick-or-treating around several subdivisions this Monday night for canned foods,” Howell said. “We’re doing this to help with Caring Day to help collect food for local food pantries.”
Students will be decorating shopping carts donated by Kroger, which will be used to collect the food. They will begin trick-or-treating around 5:30 p.m. Monday.
Howell said to check with your local homeowners’ association to see if the students are scheduled to come by. If they aren’t, you can request a subdivision pickup by emailing Howell at firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting the SGA’s Facebook page.
SGA sponsors are Houston Blackwood, Beth Long and Howell. Martha Cooper is the Ambassadors’ sponsor.
The 12th annual Caring Day in Hartselle will be conducted Nov. 4 with donated nonperishable food items going to the area’s needy families. Those who want to participate are asked to place canned goods and other nonperishable food items at the curbside on that day for pickup by personnel of the public works department.
Donations may also be dropped off beginning today at Hartselle Municipal Building, Hartselle Utilities, Joe Wheeler EMC, Sparkman Civic Center, city library, both fire stations, Hometown Market, Ace Auto Body, Hartselle Enquirer, all banks, Walgreens and CVS pharmacies and Dollar General.
First Assembly of God, Pattillo Street Church of God, First United Methodist Church and First Church of the Nazarene as well as all Hartselle City Schools are accepting donations.
