CASPER, Wyo. — Kelly Walsh High School’s Student Council will be “trick-or-treating” on Tuesday, Oct. 29 to benefit the Wyoming Rescue Mission.

They will be seeking canned goods and Thanksgiving food items this year, the first that the KW Student Council will conduct these efforts for the mission.

“We are so thankful to have youth in the community helping to restore homeless lives, especially with Thanksgiving right around the corner,” the mission’s Executive Director Brad Hopkins said.

So far in October, the mission says they have provided 5,403 meals.

“Thanksgiving is expected to bring more than 200 men, women, and children to the Mission’s doors,” their release adds.

The mission says these items are most needed for their Thanksgiving preparations:

  • canned corn
  • canned yams
  • canned green beans
  • pumpkin pie mix

“Our council hopes that by ‘trick-or-treating’ for the Mission, we can show the community of Casper that Kelly Walsh cares about homelessness in our town,” said KW Student Council President Maya Eathorne.

The mission says that food items can also be dropped off at KW’s main office if people don’t live near the school but want to contribute.

They can also call the Wyoming Rescue Mission at (307) 265-3002 for more information.
