Hunger Goblin not encouraging business district trick or treating this year, but food drive now active

With the pandemic still a threat to the health of our community, the PNA has decided to not encourage kids to go trick or treating throughout  the business district as they have for many decades now. It was a difficult decision, but one made out of the need to keep all businesses and our community as healthy as possible.

We will still be supporting the other half of Hunger Goblin’, however!  We still want to benefit our partner FamilyWorks, and are collaborating with them to hold a specific food drive to benefit their “Kids’ Powerpack” program. Decorated donation boxes are now at businesses throughout the community to collect healthy, non-perishable, kid-friendly items to support their nutritional needs as they navigate the wonders of online schooling at home. These boxes will be available for donations through November 30.

We will cross our fingers and hope to have this thing beat by Halloween 2021 and welcome throngs of adorable ghouls and ghosts again!

Powerpack examples include:

  • Juice Boxes
  • Fruit Cups
  • Granola and Energy Bars
  • Applesauce
  • Fruit Leather
  • Meals in a Cup
  • Meat Sticks and Jerkies
