The Bordentown Regional High School International Thespian Society Troupe 6803 will once again participate in the organization’s Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat program, a national community service program in which ITS member schools collect canned and dry goods for local charities and food banks. Thespian troupes from across the country are participating in the program.

Theater students from Bordentown Regional High School will be dressed in costumes to collect food donations during the local Trick or Treat activities on Oct. 31 from 5:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. Instead of trick-or-treating for candy, these students will be collecting canned food and other pantry items. These donations will go to benefit St. Mary’s Food Pantry in Bordentown. Students will be collecting donations door-to-door in the neighborhoods of Clifton Mills, Bosserts, Crystal Lake and Bordentown City.

Thousands of pounds of food will be collected in one night across the country. Bordentown residents, as well as residents of surrounding cities, are encouraged to donate canned goods and non-perishable pantry items to help the troupe reach their goal of collecting 5,000 pounds of food.

Donations for the Trick Or Treat So Kids Can Eat Food Drive are also being collected in the main offices of all Bordentown Regional School District buildings throughout October.

In eight years of participation in the program, Troupe 6803 has collected over 22,000 pounds of food donations.
