Thanks to our many, many volunteers, Westheights’ Halloween for Hunger 2010 was a tremendous success! We had a great time meeting new people, working with old friends, getting to see some really fun costumes, enjoying some fresh air and exercise, connecting with our community and – of course – collecting a ton of food for The Food Bank of Waterloo Region!
The Food bank will come to pick up the donations sometime this week and will get back to us with a grand total of exactly how much food we collected. We’ll be sure to let you know!
A special thank you to the teams who were still out collecting non-perishable food when this group photo was taken. We’re sorry you missed the photo but applaud your dedication!
Check back here soon for more Halloween for Hunger photos. Thank you once again, volunteers!
UPDATE:// We collected 2048lbs of food! Way to go Westheights!
It was a great night. Had lots of fun helping. It was our first year helping with H4H as a family and the kids had a great time (so did I). It was a good example of the fun that can be had while doing something as a team and still helping others as a result. Thanks so much to Tom & Gillian for the planning, preparations and making it all work out! 363 more days until next year’s H4H… 🙂
Looks like a terrific group! And WOW, look at all that food. Go team Westheights!
my girls had a great time collecting candy (and food) for a good cause.. We would’ve collected a lot more of both if it weren’t for a cold witch and a sickly Iron man!! LOL
I usually stay at home to give out the candy. I had not been out since the first year but it was absolutely a great time. It was so great seeing all of the volunteers who showed up from Westheights.
This is the first H4H that I’ve missed but I’ll be there next year because staying at home, handing out treats, isn’t nearly as much fun. Next year will be warmer, I hope. Good job, all you fantastic (and frozen?) volunteers! There will be many struggling families (and dogs!) blessed by your hard work.
It was an incredible night. Dave and I were saying that this is an experience that our kids will never forget. They were as excited by the food we were collecting as by the candy they were getting! What a practical way to help our kids see how they can help serve others in our world. Many thanks to the Fenskes for a fantastic job in organizing this once again!!
