(West Plains) – Howell County Outpost is the main event sponsor for the 20th Annual Trunk or Treat event, which was being held from 6-8 PM on October 30 at the West Plains Civic Center. Howell County Outpost recently presented a $2,000 check to the South Central Trunk or Treat Committee, which organizes the event to give area children the opportunity to trick or treat in a safe environment.
Admission to the event is one canned food item per person. Proceeds and canned food collected at the event benefit Ozarks Medical Center Riverways Hospice and the Elks Lodge 2418 for their Christmas for Kids program. Last year, more than 3,000 children and their families attended Trunk or Treat, receiving educational and safety information along with treats from over 80 local businesses.
Currently, the committee is seeking sponsors, including trunk sponsors, for the event. For more information about sponsorship, contact Dianne Hoover at 417-293-9969.
