BELOIT - All things spooky and scary will descend on Beloit Area Community Health Center next week as part of its annual Trunk-Or-Treat event from 5 - 7 p.m. on Oct. 26.
The health center's autumn-themed, Halloween event is one of its largest community outreach events, bringing in hundreds of kids in costume and families.
The event provides a safe place for kids to trick-or-treat, with staff and community volunteers set to gather and park decorated vehicles in the facility parking lot, passing out treats from the trunk of their vehicles. "This is an event that truly exemplifies community comradery," said Outreach and Enrollment Coordinator Ana Montoya. "The time and work that our staff and community partners put into this event shows how much we care about the kids. I am so proud to be a part of what I consider a staple of October happenings in the Beloit area and I hope to carry this tradition for many years to come."
The event is free, with the Beloit Public Library Blender Cafe and food trucks will be on hand offering up tasty bites.
Thirty area businesses and organizations will be on hand to hand out candy, from the Beloit Fire and Police Departments to Community Action and Beloit Public Library.
