Rocky Mountain College students will collect nonperishable food items from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 31 during the annual Halloween for Hunger food drive. Hosted by RMC’s Office of Community Engagement, Halloween for Hunger benefits the Rose Park Elementary School and Family Service of Billings.
RMC has set a goal of collecting 1,500 pounds of food during this year’s event.
According to a news release from RMC, approximately 60 of the school’s students, in teams of four or five, will visit Billings residents around the campus during the event. Residents within the designated “trick-or-treating” area will receive door hangers in advance of the event.
Residents outside of the designated residential area can still participate in the food drive. A collection area has been set up in the Bair Family Student Center lobby on the RMC campus and will be available for donation drop offs.
Halloween for Hunger is being coordinated by Jessie Novak, an RMC sophomore studying art and art education.
