TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Remnant church gives away over 2,500 bags of candy for their Halloween Trick-or-Treat drive-thru.
The church was able to provide candy with help from Covenant Cooperative.
“These kids have had so many things taken from them. We wanted to do something … like this is just for you. It’s not for the adults at all … unfortunately. This night is only for the kids,” stated head pastor of Remnent Church Branden Norman. “They have to be here to receive it and they’re all here.”
This is the first year that Remnant church has put this event on. They usually have a set up for kids to walk around and collect candy but due to Covid-19, the church had to make revisions to their usual plans.
Though they have never put on a Halloween drive-thru before, they have a lot of practice with drive-thru services. They have handed out food through a drive-thru service to help the Terre Haute community since March.
“I don’t know what the future holds. This looks like a a cool idea you know what I mean. Cars can just pull up they don’t have to get out. Even if it’s cold … this was the best scenario no matter what,” explained Norman.
Norman praised the volunteers and church family for their hard work through preparation as well as the event, saying without them there would be no event.
