This past Halloween two sixteen year old College Heights Secondary Students went Trick or Treating for The Salvation Army. They trekked through the Southridge area of College Heights with a wagon for two hours. Instead of asking for candy they asked for a non-perishable food item to be donated to The Salvation Army Food Bank. In typical Prince George fashion, they were met with generous donors who gave without hesitation; collecting over 105 pounds of food for our food bank.

I asked the two school friends, Sarima Rafiq Gurchani and Amy Shin, how they came up with the idea and why they chose The Salvation Army as the beneficiary. They replied, “We got the idea from other kids who had done it in the past,” going on to say, “We chose The Salvation Army because of the good work they do in the community.”

Both Sarima and Amy told me that they really enjoyed this “Trick or Treating for The Community” and told me that they intend to do this again next year. I find it heartwarming to know that our community has so many selfless people like Sarima and Amy. We look forward to seeing what next year’s Trick or Treating brings. Thank you.
