Neighbors Guido and Sherry Van Hootegem along with Holly and Brendan Haggerty are spearheading this effort, joining in the spirit of Halloween and doing a good deed at the same time.
“Last year we decided to hand out anti-drug booklets from the Foundation for a Drug Free World along with the treats,” said Sherry Van Hootegem. “This year we decided to do it again, but with a little bit more. The Community Learning Center of Clearwater will donate over 400 books to the children,” she continued.
Sherry and her friends will also ask the kids to become Drug-Free Marshals and sign a Drug-Free Pledge. Once they’ve signed the pledge, they will be “deputized” with a “Sheriff’s Badge” as a confirmation of their pledge to be drug-free and to encourage others to do the same. Washburn Academy Art Students have also donated two huge beanbag toss games to the event.
