CONNECT MEMBERS TRICK-OR-TREAT FOR CANNED GOODS
LA CROSSE, Wis.—The Viterbo University Connect Club is sponsoring a trick-or-treat for canned goods event on Halloween, Wednesday, Oct. 31.
Between the hours of 5:30 and 8 p.m., about 15 Viterbo students will be trick-or-treating in costumes around South Side La Crosse neighborhoods and collecting non-perishable food items. The donations collected will be given to the Place of Grace, a Catholic worker house located in the Hood Park neighborhood. Volunteers at the Place of Grace provide meals, food, and fellowship to area individuals and families of any denomination, needing assistance in La Crosse.
Donations may also be dropped off at the ViterboStudent Development Center, located at 936 Winnebago Street. Contact Christine Ahles, student coordinator, for more information at 608-796-3509.
