23rd Annual Trick or Treat Trailer To Trailer attracts more than 1600 area children

On October 31st, more than 1,600 people attended RV Sales Trick or Treat Trailer to Trailer and donated nearly 2,000 lbs of food to the local food bank.

More than 1,600 people attended this year. All we ask is that each person bring $1 or a can of food that will be donated to the local foodbank, The Bethel Community Storehouse Neighbors Helping Neighbors Program. We are always overwhelmed by the community’s generosity as we help launch the holiday food drives. This year, we were able to donate nearly 2,000lbs of food that will be given to local needy family’s. “We had so many more donations at the gate this year. As we greeted everyone, lots of families were gave a few extra cans or donated a little bit more money. When Bethel Storehouse picks up the food, we see that this event is worth all of the time and money that it takes to organize,” said Kevin Ridenour, who has taken over as part of the third generation of ownership at RV Sales. “It wouldn’t be possible without our employees, volunteers and sponsors.  They deserve a big pat on the back for all of their support.”

Children of all ages dress up for haunts and fun, and leave with a bag full of candy. At the end of the day, our volunteers have just as much fun as the little ghosts and goblins. “When you see the smiles on the children’s faces, it shows you how important this event is to the community. This was our second time volunteering and we are always glad when we are able to dress up and pass out candy.” Ken Ballew, repeat RV Sales customer and volunteer.

This year, we coordinated 123 volunteers, many are customers who travel from across the country to help. We passed out more than 50,000 pieces of candy from 40 trailer doors in one safe, well-lit location. “We sponsored and volunteered for the first time this year. We remember when RV Sales first started this event years ago, and our friends volunteered. For so many years, we were the recipients of this event and RV Sales’ generosity. We felt like it was our turn to give back since we can. There aren’t many neighborhoods to trick or treat in this community. It is fun to see all of the kids dressed up, to be able to say hi to friends when you see them come through with their families. Our daughter Victoria helped to pass out candy and she enjoyed it also” said Marv Alvarado, Bonnie Plant Farms

It has also become a great tradition for Bennett’s Amusement to donate their Haunted House to the Rotary Club who raises money for their scholarship program at this community. This year the Rotary Club raised $360.  ”Thank you all so much for coordinating this to keep our children safe. My girls look forward to this every year!!” Keela Schon, local mother.
