Key Club spent their Halloween trick-or-treating and collecting canned goods for the Good Shepherd Mission. “I enjoyed collecting the canned goods because I was able to hang out with some friends while helping out my community,” senior Jessamine Nguyen said. All the cans collected that night were donated to The Good Shepherd Mission.

Key Club spent their Halloween night going house to house, trick-or-treating for canned goods to donate to the Good Shepherd Mission.The group went to Forest Hills and Pine Valley, asking residents for any canned goods that they were willing to donate for families in need.

“We collected roughly 30 to 40 cans, and we ended up taking them to the Good Shepherd Mission that night so the families have the food already,” junior, Victoria Bounds said.

Key Club members spent hours knocking on doors, seeing who would open their doors to donate. Just a few high school students managed to collect a good amount of goods.

“There was a total of 10 people who trick-or-treated and helped us collect cans,” senior, Jessamine Nguyen said.

“You don’t really get to see the reward, but you can imagine how the families feel when they get the food they need,” junior, Hannah Smith said.

Key Club has been carrying out this tradition for roughly 10 years. Every year, instead of dressing up and asking for candy, they go out, asking for donations to feed families that aren’t able to provide for themselves.

The Good Shepherd Mission gives out hundreds of canned goods to families each month.The Key Club is very happy that each year they are able to provide more and more to help people in the community.

“I wanted to join and help out the families in need because I know how they must feel, so I want to do anything I can to help,” said senior, Caleb Smith.
