The Statesboro Family YMCA will host the 2nd Annual Drive-Thru Trunk or Treat on Saturday, October 30 from 4 pm – 6 pm. Local businesses and organizations will host trunks to hand out candies and goodies as kids and families drive through. Costumes are optional and face masks are encouraged. There will be a costume contest on the Statesboro Family YMCA Facebook page.
The Drive-Thru Trunk or Treat event is designed to provide community members with a safe alternative to door-to- door trick or treating. “I love this event, it is so great to see all of the amazing families and see the smiles on the kids’ faces,” said Hannah Beggs, Fitness and Membership Director. “Last year we had 25 community organizations decorate their trunks and provide candy to over 700 kids. I am looking forward to the overwhelming community support again this year”.
Organizations or businesses that are interested in decorating a trunk and passing out candy can contact Hannah Beggs via email at email@example.com or call the Statesboro YMCA at (912) 225-1962. Organizations are asked to bring at least 5-7 bags of candy with them and arrive no later than 3:15 pm on the day of the event to set up. The business or organization with the best decorated truck will receive a YMCA gift bask with a FREE 1-month YMCA membership. The Statesboro Family YMCA is also accepting individually wrapped/pre-packaged candy for the event. Donated candy can be dropped off at the Statesboro Family YMCA Welcome Center located at 409 Clairborne Ave. The Statesboro Family YMCA is open Monday –Friday 5 am – 9pm, Saturday 7am – 6pm or Sunday 12 pm – 6pm.
