Waconia Students Trick or Treat for Food Donations

A group of Waconia High School students took to the streets Halloween night in search of food donations for local food pantries.

According to the Sun Patriot, group called WHOOT (Wildcats Helping Others Over Themselves) teamed up with volleyball team and show choir members to collect the food. This is the second consecutive year of the initiative and the goal was to collect 2,000 pounds of food. Last year they were able to collect 1,800 pounds.

“It’s a great way to celebrate Halloween and do something good also,”  Danielle Pioske, a sophomore, told the newspaper. “I know a lot of people give away candy and stuff for it, but I thought it was a great way to give away food and something that could make a difference.”
