The Clay County 4-H Junior Leaders will take to the streets during Halloween for trick or treating.

But not for candy or goodies.

The group will be trick or treating for canned goods to donate to local food pantries.

One of the goals of the Junior Leader program is to teach young people leadership and responsibility. By completing community service projects, the young people learn to think about others and look for ways to help the community.

Service projects that have been completed include making baby blankets for premature babies at Regional and Union hospitals, assembling "birthday parties in a bag," to be handed out at food pantries, Christmas caroling at the local nursing homes, making tray favors for the patients at the nursing homes, cleaning up trash along State Road 59, ringing the bell for the Salvation Army and collecting canned goods for the food pantries.

The 4-H Junior Leaders will be easy to spot on Halloween as they will be wearing a 4-H sticker that will identify them.

The youth will be canvassing the area looking for canned good donations between 6-7:30 p.m.

All canned goods that are donated will go to Clay County food pantries.
