Planning is underway for this year’s Trick-or-Treat Trailer-to-Trailer, hosted and sponsored by RV Sales of New Mexico.

The event provides a safe location for kids and families to trick-or-treat at more than 40 doors, and supports Bethel Community Storehouse, with all proceeds and food gathered at admission donated to Bethel.

Proceeds from the Haunted House, sponsored by Bennett’s Amusements, are donated to the Moriarty Rotary Club’s Scholarship program.

In 2015, RV Sales collected over three pallets of canned food and over $800 to benefit Bethel Storehouse, and over $500 for scholarships. More than 1,600 people attended last year’s event.

Volunteers may be needed to dress up and pass out candy. Those interested in volunteering are encouraged to call 505-832-2400 or email Halloween@rvsalesnm.com.

Donations to offset the costs of candy, lights, advertising and food are also being solicited. Donors will be recognized by posted signs at the event and in local newspapers following the event.

If you would like to make a donation, checks made out to RV Sales can be mailed to P.O. Box 2098, Moriarty, NM, 87035. Cash or checks can be dropped off in person at RV Sales in Moriarty on Route 66.

The RV Sales 23rd Annual Trick-or-Treat Trailer-to-Trailer will be held Oct. 31, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at RV Sales.
