Halloween Night: Trick or treat so others can eat

(Oct. 26, 2007)--The UTSA chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Society will host its eighth annual food drive walk from 6 to 9 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 31 in the historic Monte Vista neighborhood.

On Halloween night, volunteers will collect non-perishable food items to be delivered to the San Antonio Food Bank. Before Halloween, Omicron Delta Kappa will distribute fliers to the homes in the neighborhood to raise awareness of the event.

The group needs a minimum of six students to adopt a street. By adopting a street, the students will visit every home on that street, collect the items and also give each household a tax deductible form for their contributions.

Omicron Delta Kappa invites other student organizations to get involved by helping to collect food for the hungry. Participants can dress up in their favorite Halloween costumes. Refreshments and snacks will be served for volunteers. Volunteers with trucks are needed to hold the items as they are collected.

Last year, more than 100 volunteers from various UTSA organizations helped collect 900 pounds of food, enough to feed 100 families for the entire month.
