It’s not every Halloween that youngsters get to grab candy from a police car or fire truck.
This year, children can get a jump on Halloween trick-or-treating with a little help from area emergency personnel. At the second annual Trunk or Treat event being held from 6-8 p.m. Sunday in the Fulton Walmart parking lot, emergency personnel and area businesses will offer a safe environment for area youth to gather candy. As all proceeds from the event will go toward the annual Christmas Shop with a Cop program, a $1 donation per child is requested.
Sgt. Joel Schramm of the Fulton Police Department spearheads the program and said last year’s Trunk or Treat event brought in $750.
He encourages parents to bring their children out on Sunday saying, “It’s a safe way to do their trick-or-treating and also help this program out so we can take children Christmas shopping that might not otherwise have Christmas.”
