Trunk-to-Trunk & Blood Drive

Join us for safe trick-or-treating and family fun on the Kettering campus including: Trunk decorating, costume and carved pumpkin contest, Blood drive, Food, Music, and... the world famous Haunted DOGS House.

The success of Trunk-to-Trunk is partly due to the generous donations of volunteer time, BBQ items, candy and other treat give-aways.
  • If you would like to donate food items, candy, or other giveaway treats that will be distributed at each trunk, please take those items to the Parent Center or front office. There are large plastic tubs where these items will be stored until the event. Perishables may be dropped off Friday afternoon.
  • If you would like to donate blood, please contact Mrs. Fillipow to reserve your appointment time to donate a pint of blood! See the Blood Donor Guidelines for more info.
  • To volunteer with set-up, clean-up, a decorated trunk, and/or the Haunted House, please contact the Top D.O.G at
