Creepy creatures collecting canned goods on Halloween night

It may only take a can of food to ward off monsters this weekend.

Goblins and ghouls from the North Peace Secondary School are organizing the school’s first ever ‘Halloween for Hunger’ campaign.

Principal Daniel Vecchio says around 20 students have agreed to go door-to-door, and collect food for a local food bank.

Next week, students will decide which food bank they will give the donated items to.

Vecchio says the students organized the event, after returning from the ‘We Day’ Conference in Vancouver. The conference aimed at promoting selflessness.

Vecchio says the students found inspiration from that message to help others in the community.

Any non-perishable items will be accepted, and households are asked to donate just one item each for the cause.

Vecchio hopes the high school can partner up with other schools in the area to make the 2010 collection even bigger.
