The 19th Buckhannon’s Trick-or-Treat for Canned Foods will be held on October 30 by WVWC students
BUCKHANNON, West Virginia – In support of local Buckhannon families, the community of Buckhannon, alongside the Upshur Cooperative Parish House and West Virginia Wesleyan College (WVWC), announced the 19th year of Trick-or-Treat for Canned Goods.
With COVID-19 continuing, the Upshur Cooperative Parish House, an organization that regularly supports community members who are struggling to meet their needs, has said it needs more donations.
Trick-or-Treat for Canned Foods will take place on October 30 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
WVWC students will go door-to-door to receive donations, asking, “Would you like to donate non-perishable food for the Trick-or-Treat for Canned Goods event?” These “treats” can receive cans of non-perishable food as well as donations.
If you miss your house or if you are not at home, donations can be given directly to the Parish House during the week of the event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“Trick-or-Treat for Canned Goods is one of those annual fall traditions well known among the Wesleyan and Buckhannon communities. This collaboration relies heavily on our good neighbors in the community surrounding the college, and the student volunteers who make it happen. door-to-door are always full of joy as families run to their pantry to collect donations. It is a wonderful way for students to explore our community and to create a way to give at the parish house said Jessica Vincent, director of the Center for Community Engagement and Leadership Development.
