Halloween Food Drive benefiting Catholic Charities moved to Nov. 1

TERRE HAUTE — Due to the change in trick or treat hours in the City of Terre Haute, the Halloween Food Drive by Terre Haute South Vigo High School’s boys and girls swim teams has been changed to Friday, Nov. 1.

The swim teams will compete in the 10th annual event from 6 to 8 p.m., starting at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jamey Kirsch, 980 E. Monticello Drive, and encompassing the neighborhood and surrounding area.

For the past nine years, the South boys and girls swim teams have competed out of the pool to see which team can collect the most non-perishable food during their annual Halloween Food Drive. Team members will meet at the Kirsch home for brief instructions and then “trick or treat” for non-perishable food items – all of which will be donated to Terre Haute Catholic Charities Foodbank.

During the inaugural year of the food drive, the teams collected about 700 pounds of food, but the quantities have grown each year. The teams are looking to break their record by collecting 7,000 pounds this year.

“It’s a great way for the youth in our community to get involved in helping to solve hunger in our communities,” said Tom Kuhl, program director of Terre Haute Catholic Charities Foodbank. “We enjoy working with both teams and are thankful for their efforts in collecting food for our hungry neighbors.”

If the teams reach their goal, they will provide about 5,800 meals to hungry families in area communities.
