Trick or Treat …UIS Style

On October 31  most every child in the U.S. gets excited about that special costume and going door to door to get lots of candy.  My brothers and sister and I used to make a huge haul every year in our small town in South Dakota. UIS students go door to door on Halloween, too, except they have a different style of trick or treating.  They collect canned goods or non-perishable items for the Central Illinois Food Bank. It’s the kick off for the UIS Holiday Stars Project, coordinated by the UIS Volunteer & Civic Engagement Center.  Wednesday night over 150 students and many UIS employees participated in this important annual event.  If you don’t think they have fun giving back to our community, you need to check out the pictures and the video of the night.  This is Trick or Treating UIS style!!
