Toledo mayoral candidate D. Michael Collins is planning a special â??Trunk or Treatâ?? for local children Saturday evening.
The event will take place in the parking lot of the UAW Local 12 Headquarters at 2300 Ashland Ave. from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The event was organized by a group of college-age volunteers helping on Collinsâ?? mayoral campaign.
â??As we went door-to-door in some neighborhoods, my volunteers noticed the number of boarded up or abandoned houses and overall unsafe conditions for trick or treating on Halloween. The idea was presented to our committee that we should organize our volunteers and host our own Halloween celebration for these youngsters who otherwise would not experience the fun of trick or treating,â?? said Mr. Collins.
At least 20 volunteers --- some in costumes --- are expected to park their cars in the UAW Local 12 parking lot and pass out candy and treats to children.
Some cars will be decorated as well. Children will have the opportunity to â??trunk or treatâ?? down rows of cars in the parking lot.
To volunteer or get more information on this event, call the Collins Campaign Hotline at 419-601-0596.
