KRUN AM and the Ballinger Chamber of Commerce will host the annual Trunk or Treat Monday, October 31st from 6-8 PM on 8th Street in downtown Ballinger. The 100 block of North Eighth Street will be closed to through traffic that evening.
The Ministerial Alliance will be cooking hot dogs and distributing water to benefit the Ballinger Community Pantry. Cost of food and drinks will be a donation of non-perishable food items and/or cash to the Ballinger Community Pantry.
This year the Teal Pumpkin Project is being promoted as a safe alternative for children with food allergies. Trunks offering allergen free items (such as toys, bubbles, or allergen free foods) will be identified by signage indicating they are a participant in the Teal Pumpkin Project.
Persons interested in having a trunk at the event should register their trunk ahead of time, plan to have their trunk ready by 5:30 PM the night of the event, and expect to remain in place at the event until at least 8 PM. For those that would like to contribute but are unable to have a trunk, monetary, candy, and other donations will be accepted in advance at the KRUN studios and the Ballinger Chamber of Commerce Office. Candy needs to be store bought, and individually wrapped. To register your trunk, or for more information, contact Amy Page at email@example.com or (325) 718-9950 or Susan Halllford at (325) 365-5500.
The goal of Trunk or Treat is to provide a safe environment for the approximately 500 children that participate each year and to increase stores of non-perishable food items at the Ballinger Community Pantry. Donations are much needed, appreciated, and benefit your local community.
