Trunk or Treat food, clothing drive collects items for Safe House
Magic Valley residents gathered Sunday in Twin Falls, in a Trunk or Treat food and clothing drive.
People gathered at Amazing Grace Fellowship off Eastland Drive, from 6:00 to 7:00 this evening, for festivities, free candy, and cocoa.
Officials say, this is a fun and safe alternative to Halloween, and it allows the community to donate to a local non-profit.
Peter Bierma, with the church, said, "Its actually a big help. The idea is that its going to meet a need in the community, specifically the Safe House, this is a great non-profit locally, who we hope to donate a bunch of stuff to. They've got a lot of needs, and we want to meet those needs. That's why we're here."
The Trunk or Treat food and clothing drive is something the church does every year. They asked for non-perishable items such as canned food or, hygiene items such as toothpaste and soap, to pre-teen and teen sized clothing in good condition.
It's estimated about 300 to 500 people showed up last year.
Officials say, they expect about that many people to come this year as well.
