KILGORE — Two young cousins are hoping to provide a more “spooktacular” Halloween and a merrier Christmas for their fellow members of the Kilgore Boys & Girls Club.
Olivia Chalk and Jaida Thurmond, both 10, are asking members of the community to consider donating holiday decorations they no longer use or want.
“We’ve got a few things set up here already, but we’d like to make it really scary for our Halloween haunted house,” Olivia said. “Then we want it to be really pretty at Christmas time.”
The girls are seeking make-believe mummies, bats, skeletons, ghosts and any other items that are sufficiently eerie — but not too frightening for young children — for their Halloween decor.
“Basically, we’re just asking for anything people have, but don’t need any more, that would help put us more in the mood for Halloween,” Jaida said.
The girls are seeking decorations for both the interior and the exterior of the building and have the full support of club director LaKesha Hall for the project.
