Food drive planned


In addition to giving out candy to costumed kiddies this Hallowe’en, local residents also will be visited by Fort Frances High School students looking for non-perishable food items to give to a good cause on Oct. 31.
The youth group—FFHS Saving Faces—participated in an event last year called “Hallowe’en for Hunger” and collected food items door-to-door.
This year, the group is working in collaboration with Free the Children’s Mobilizers, or “The Mob” for short, and will be doing the same, Natalie Hyatt of FFHS Saving Faces wrote in an e-mail to the Times.
“We will once again be trick-or-treating for non-perishable goods on Hallowe’en this year,” she noted.
“We will be trick-or-treating between 5-8 p.m., and we ask that all people willing to donate have the canned goods near the front door as this saves time,” added Hyatt.
“We hope to have a larger group this year so that we can cover more ground and collect more food,” she reasoned.
