Fall Festival

Volunteer Opportunities


Candy Donations

We need help packing candy bags! There will be two sessions to assist with this: Friday, October 23rd 6:00-8:00pm and Saturday, October 24th 9:00-11:00am. If you would like to come help, please do so. We will meet in the Fellowship Mall. Our goal is to pack all 1,400 candy bags between these two sessions, so we need lots of help! The last day to donate candy is Thursday, October 22nd. Candy can be placed in the orange bins near the church entrances. If you have any questions about Fall Festival, please contact us at kidsmin@hoffmantown.org.
