Here at HSN we wanted to find a way to give back to the local community through a charity event, so months ago we began to search for ways that we knew we could support the local town.
After months of ideas, suggestions and support from the local Township, pointing us in the right direction, we began working with Dean Nelson the Hopewell High School Online Education & Technology Facilitator. In working with Dean, we found a way that HSN could support and with that we are announcing the HSN Trick or Treat for Canned Goods Event for this Halloween!!
Our mission is athlete development, township engagement and overall to give back to the community and as part of our way to deliver on that promise, Hopewell Sports Nation is excited to now be supporting the Teachers of Hopewell Area School District, Hopewell National Honors Society, and Junior National Honors Society with their Food Drive/Donation Campaign this upcoming holiday season (Full Details Below).
“Sometimes when we are generous in small, barely detectable
ways, it can change someone else’s life forever.”
*What: Hopewell Sports Nation will be collecting Canned Food donations for the NHS 2023 Thanksgiving Food Drive by hosting a Trick or Treat for Canned Goods event with actual trick or treaters going door to door in the Sweet Brier Neighborhood this Halloween as a kick off for the holiday giving season. Additional donations can be dropped off to HSN at the below address on Halloween.
*When: Halloween for the Trick or Treating Event, HSN will have trick or treaters out in the Sweet Brier Community (only) on Halloween to collect canned goods, please leave items bagged/marked and ready on front porches. Simply write HSN Canned Food Drive on bags!!! – Additional drop off days will be available in November (listed below in the flyer) at the High School where student volunteers will participate.
*Where: Trick or Treating will happen in Sweet Brier however, additional canned food donations can be dropped off at the below address in the Sweet Brier Community on Halloween, you can also drop them off anytime leading up to Halloween by leaving them in a bag or box in front of the garage door.
