Madera High School hosted the Madera Unified School District’s Trunk or Treat event and drew more than 400 kids to the campus.


“It started out as a community service event for children and youths in transition and it’s expanded over the years,” said Isaac Lopez, MHS Activities Director.


Lopez said there was about double the amount of kids they have had in the past.


“We had approximately 400 kids,” he said. “We had an RSVP for about 250 kids, but, with the high school kids also participating, there were more than 500 kids.”


Lopez said there were about 20 groups with a mixture of clubs and sports teams participating.


“It’s heartwarming to see the kids,” Lopez said. “To see the kids eyes light up coming up to an activity, is great. You’re creating memories. It’s really cool to see.”


Lopez is now getting the planning started for the Christmas event for the children.
