WINFIELD — The Southwestern College Education Builders are providing a safe place for area youth to gather from 6 to 7 p.m. Oct. 29.

Southwestern College logoThe Education Builders are presenting the second annual Trunk or Treat in the keyhole drive, located at the bottom of the 77 Steps. There is no admission charge.

Ed Builders is an SC education organization that strives to do as many projects as possible to benefit children of all ages, according to member Karrie McNutt.

The Trunk or Treat will consist of decorated vehicles parked near the bottom of the 77 Steps, and children and their families will be able to walk through and vote on their favorite one.

“This was all started so that children in Cowley County could experience a fun and safe environment to trick-or-treat for the Halloween season, along with getting to interact with enthusiastic college students ready to put a smile on a child’s face,” McNutt said.

“With between 10 and 15 on-campus SC organizations, clubs and sports teams participating, this event is a great way to boost youth involvement at SC and give these children someone to look up to.”
