Trunk R Treat is Coming
One of our biggest outreach events of the year is coming in October. Every year, we strive to make Trunk R Treat a safe and free event for our community where we have the opportunity to meet many families who do not currently attend our church and we need your help. We are currently looking for planning committee help, day of volunteers, and carnival game prize donations. If you could please visit our Amazon Wish List (http://a.co/1dLo3nr) and order a game prize pack for the event it would be greatly appreciated. This will help offset the cost of this event that will reach around 1,500 people. We will be looking for candy donation in October. If you have questions or would like to help in any way, please contact Lara Jackson at email@example.com.
