MONTVILLE, NJ – The Montville Township High School Key Club hosted a “Monster Bash” on Oct. 28. The Halloween party for children, held at the high school, was a fundraiser for the Community Food Bank of New Jersey and the Montville Kiwanis food pantry.

Sixty pounds of food were collected for the Montville food pantry, and $75 was raised for the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, according to Key Club advisor and MTHS teacher Jana Lenox. The Key Club works in cooperation with the adult Kiwanis Club of Montville.

The kids came in costume and had numerous games and crafts to choose from, including face painting, tattoos, mason jar lanterns, lollipop ring toss, and the scarier eyeball in the haystack game. There was also pumpkin bowling, wagon rides and a photo booth. Funky Halloween music set the party mood.

“The kids have been working on this for about a month,” said advisor Jana Lenox.

“This event went really well and I’m happy with the amount we raised for the food pantries,” said Key Club President Taylor Blicht, who is a senior at MTHS and has been a member all four years she has been at the school. “Our next event will be our Thanksgiving food drive. All the homerooms participate.”

“The club packages all the fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner, including gift certificates for turkeys provided by the Montville Kiwanis, to give to 25 families or more in Montville,” Lenox said. “We usually collect about 1500 items. The collection runs from Nov. 6 to Nov. 15.”
