Haunted House collects items for the Food Bank

Clearwater and District Food Bank would like to sincerely thank the Smith / Morgan

Clearwater and District Food Bank would like to sincerely thank the Smith / Morgan families for their generous support of the Food Bank and dedication to the community.

For those that don’t know Mike and Sindy Smith, they and Sindy’s family, the Morgans, are the people that do the Haunted House on Wyndhaven Place each year. The Morgan side of the family come up from Surrey, taking time off work and away from their own lives and schedules, to put on a fabulous two-evening event for our community.

For the last four years they have turned this into a fundraiser for the Food Bank. This year’s theme was a Carn-evil, a 3D experience not to be forgotten. Who knew clowns could be so freaky?

The many hours of hard work and personal expense cannot be overstated. Well over 300 people, young and old, shrieked and squealed their way through and left laughing. Despite the weather, the atmosphere was great. The teens and young people were amazing – always pleasant, polite and respectful.

Safety Mart provided hot chocolate, Home Hardware provided popcorn and popcorn maker, goodies were by Mike, Sindy and family and other goodies by the Food Share Program.

Admission was by a non-perishable food item or a cash donation to the Food Bank. A total of 254 food items were collected and $162.55 in cash.

This is an unbelievably impressive community event and if you did not participate, mark it on your ‘Must Do’ list for next year.
