Before leaving to Trick-or-Treat for cans in 2021, volunteers met in the Commons. Senior Daisy Foster met one of her best friends while collecting cans.

In her sophomore year, senior Daisy Foster volunteered through Key Club, a volunteer organization, at the Trick-or-Treat for Cans event hosted by Student Council.

Volunteers walked through neighborhoods to collect canned food that was later donated.

“I had a few friends volunteering so I wanted to do it too,” Foster said.

While there, she found her friend, senior Brooke Elston, sitting at a table.

“She was sitting with [Class of 2023 graduate] Sarah Battula and I started talking to her,” Foster said. “She was really nice and we all ended up staying together and trick or treating for cans.”

While Matula is currently in college, Foster said that they still stay in touch.

“That was my best memory of volunteering because we’re still really good friends, we still talk to this day,” she said.

Not only did the volunteer opportunity lead Foster to make a new friend, she enjoyed the feeling that came from doing something good for the community.

“It was fun to collect all the cans,” Foster said. “To know that it’s going to a good cause is rewarding.”

While she volunteers less due to a busy schedule, Foster still plans to participate with Key Club as much as possible this year.
