LOCAL MIDDLE SCHOOL THEATRE STUDENTS VOLUNTEER TO TRICK OR TREAT BECAUSE HUNGER IS A VERY SCARY THING
Cain Middle School and Rockwall-Heath High School Theater students helped collect canned food donations, weighing 584 pounds, in the recent Trick or Treat so Kids Can Eat Campaign. Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat is a national community service program for International Thespian Society (ITS) member schools to collect canned and dry goods for local charities and food banks.
The donations will help fill the shelves at the Rockwall County Helping Hands food pantry right before the holiday season.
Students collected donations on campus. Continued donations are welcome at the Rockwall County Helping Hands.
