UW-Green Bay students to ‘trick or treat’ for food donations

GREEN BAY — This Halloween, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay students will be trick or treating for food donations in the neighborhoods surrounding the UW-Green Bay campus.

The collection will take place between 4 and 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 31. Students participating in the project will each display a neon-colored sticker that reads “Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat.” Each non-perishable food item collected will be donated to Paul’s Pantry.

“Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat” is a service project organized by the UW-Green Bay Chapter of Circle K. The program is based nationally, with many successes in past years within other communities and organizations. This is the second year Circle K will be collecting.

While the project is currently limited to the neighborhoods surrounding the UW-Green Bay campus, Brown County can still donate non-perishable food directly to Paul’s Pantry. The facility is located at 1529 Leo Frigo Way in Green Bay.

Donation hours are: Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.; Saturday, 6 a.m. to noon; Sunday, 7 a.m. to noon. More information about Paul’s Pantry is online at www.paulspantry.org.
