University of Jamestown's Trick-or-Can brings in record donations
More than 280 students participated in the event.
JAMESTOWN — University of Jamestown’s Student Senate hosted its annual Trick-Or-Can event on October 30 and saw record-breaking numbers. More than 280 students participated, collecting nearly 6,000 items to donate to the Community Action Region VI food pantry in Jamestown.
With the need for donations at an all-time high following the temporary closing of the Salvation Army in Jamestown, the University of Jamestown said it was especially grateful to its volunteers and community participants.
“A massive thank you to our students who participated, our Student Senate who organized the event, and our very generous community," said Sara Robinson, UJ Student Senate adviser. "Families across Jamestown will be so blessed by your contributions!”
Trick-Or-Can began at the University of Jamestown in 2005. Every year around Halloween, UJ student volunteers walk around the Jamestown community, going door-to-door to ask for donations. This year, donations came in the form of non-perishable food items, personal hygiene supplies, cleaning supplies, pet supplies, and items for babies
