TRURO – Sea cadets from the local corps are set to canvas the town on Tuesday collecting donations for the Colchester Food Bank.
The ‘Trick-or-Eat’ event will see costumed cadets going door-to-door asking residents for non-perishable food or monetary donations.
Navy league cadets will join the sea cadets, and all will have a Halloween party following the canvassing.
“These young men and woman are too old to go door-to-door for candy, but who doesn’t enjoy dressing up and having a good time with friends?” said Lt. Allan MacDonald, the navy corps’ executive officer. “And isn’t it great that they’re finding a way to help the community at the same time?”
The cadets will focus their efforts on the parts of Truro closest to their Willow St. headquarters - Roosevelt Avenue, Smith Avenue, Victoria Street, Duke Street, and their side streets.
Anyone wishing to make a donation can do so on Tuesday between 6 and 9 p.m. at the Truro Armoury, 126 Willow St.
