The charity Haunt for Hunger, run in Blackstone by Mike and Becky Bouley from 2009-2013, is starting up again with a fresh look. As in its previous years, the charity will continue to collect canned goods for the Blackstone-Millville Food Pantry, but will also serve to donate its monetary proceeds from all events to the Blackstone-Millville Music Association (BMMA). The Blackstone-Millville Food Pantry serves to assist community members in need by providing food related items to its clients on a monthly basis. The BMMA is an outstanding school based music program for kids playing instruments from grade 5-12. It provides many opportunities for students who play music including, the chance to play and travel with the nationally recognized BMR Chargers Marching Band. Haunt for Hunger is looking forward to offering support to both organizations this year.
For 2019, Haunt for Hunger will run July 12th and 13th in the evening, presenting its typical haunted trail with a “Twisted Christmas in July” theme. The evening events are geared for ages 13 and up, as they contain many jump scares along the dark and creepy trail in the woods. Haunt for Hunger will also run a daytime event on Saturday, July 13th, geared towards younger children up to age 13. This event’s theme will be “Christmas in July” and will not contain scary components like the evening events. Specific details on event times will be provided as the dates approach.
Currently, Haunt for Hunger is seeking donations of unwanted Christmas and/or Halloween decorations. Nothing is too little, and arrangements to pick up donated items can be made. Volunteers are also being sought to help run daytime and evening events. Volunteer needs include running games, haunted trail actors (must be 16 or older), canned good collectors, and general assistance running operations.
