"It's a great way to put some real meaning into Halloween", said Rev. Crews.
It all started on Sydney's Northern Beaches a few years ago when a dad told his son he could only trick-or-treat if he collected food for the poor at The Exodus Foundation. "So they collected tins and packaged food and sent them to us", said Rev. Crews.
This year Rev. Bill is encouraging kids across Sydney to get involved. "When you go out this Halloween, ask your neighbours to donate a tin of food instead of lollies", he said. "Once you've collected the food you can drop it off at The Exodus Foundation."
The Exodus Foundation provides almost 800 emergency food parcels to the poor and the homeless every month. Demand is increasing and Christmas is always especially busy. "I'm sure Sydney kids can rise to the challenge and help us meet the need this Christmas", said Rev. Crews.
