We want to take a moment to thank the Juneau Community for the last 20 years of food donations and support. With all the local hardships and struggles over the past three years, we have seen record donations.
The community has always come together during economic hardships. These upcoming holidays are a good time to think of the less fortunate or ones working hard to make ends meet with today’s inflation and costs. Southeast families are hurting more than usual. The Earls Family Halloween Haunted House has always been about helping and supporting the community we live in and the families in need. We give hours and unpaid time for the hope of support matched by the community. The Earls Family uses all food donations to give back to our home community, we donate time, sweat and family deliberations over decorations to make this charitable event come to life every year. Together we can show future generations how strong the Juneau Community can be when we unite to give back to family, friends, and strangers in need. Giving back is the best silent angel gift you can give.
We as a Juneau Family and local new business owner, challenge every corporation, company, or business to beat the proceeds of our last three years of donations if we can keep this going to support our community. All donations go to Southeast Food Bank. A total of 1,563 pounds of donations went to Helping Hands in 2021 and 1,660 pounds of donations to the food bank in 2022.The goal for 2023 is more than 2,000 pounds of donations.

Oct. 27-29: 5-10 p.m.
