The City of Corcoran offered children a chance for safe trick-or-treating on October 22, with the Substance Abuse Treatment Facility (SATF) on hand to help.

Warden Theresa Cisneros and multiple staff members from SATF volunteered to be a part of this annual trick-or-treating event.

The community of Corcoran hosted its third annual Trunk-or-Treat, by blocking off a large portion of Whitley Avenue in Corcoran. The street was closed to traffic to allow event goers to walk down the street collecting candy for the 1st hour. To ensure no one went without, the event planners allowed for those wishing to remain in cars to drive thru and collect treats for the last hour or so of the event.

In all, 52 decorated vehicles were on hand passing out candy to people attending the event. The city estimated that approximately 500 to 600 walkers and 205 vehicles participated in the trick-or-treating event.

The night was a success as members of the community thanked Warden Cisneros and SATF staff for attending the event.

“It is because of the amazing staff at SATF, who don’t hesitate to volunteer and be part in great community events like these,” said Warden Cisneros.
