ÔPirateÕs AlleyÕ scares for a cause
Submitted By Florence van Kleef
When the sky shifts to darkness, itÕs time to visit ÒPirateÕs AlleyÓ and get your scare on for a good cause.
Now in its 7th year, Dan Jarvis has created his most scary haunted house, with his entire backyard set up as a fright zone. This is not only to scare people and have fun, but to collect canned food for the Alameda County Food Bank. Last year Jarvis collected 480 pounds of food, which was able to feed 350 families. This year his goal is to feed more.
Students from Kennedy High School help put on the haunted house, and the event gives them a great opportunity to gain some service learning hours as well as help feed hungry people.
What is the cost for this frightful delight? One can of food for the Alameda County Food Bank. Come out and celebrate Halloween with a good scare and a helping hand.
