The Pine River First Lutheran Church youth group dressed up for Halloween and hit the streets to collect not candy, but canned goods for a Scaring Away Hunger event.

The group split into four before going in different directions to ask Pine River residents for donations to the food shelf.

Together the 20 youth ages 12-16 collected 376 pounds of donations in a little more than an hour of trick-or-treating.
