SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Mr. Subs, in an effort to give back to the community, will host a special Trunk or Treat event on Saturday, Oct. 22 (rain date Sunday, Oct. 23) to benefit the South Plainfield Food Pantry.

“Mr. Subs is always trying to find ways to help the community so I thought why not have an event that brings everyone together for a good cause,” said event organizer Bhavita Patel.

Trunk set up begins at 4 p.m. with Trunk or Treating taking place at the South Plainfield Avenue eatery from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Mr. Subs will provide all the candy and there will be a DJ, pumpkin painting, and games. There will also be a costume contest with prizes, including a $50 gift card to Mr. Subs for ‘best trunk,’ and $25 gift cards to Mr. Subs for ‘best adult costume,’ and ‘best child costume’ (one girl/one boy). Additionally, diners in costume can take advantage of 10-percent off food purchases during the event.

The cost is $5 per family or a bag of groceries and 100-percent of proceeds will go to the South Plainfield Food Pantry. Also, anyone wishing to make a monetary or food donation to the pantry can also drop items off anytime during regular business hours.

Throughout the year, Mr. Subs sponsors fundraisers for various community organizations, including the South Plainfield Food Pantry every last Wednesday of the month. According to Patel, the trunk or treat event provides yet another opportunity for Mr. Subs to give back.

“The other day I explained to my 6-year old how much this event will help families in our town and the amazed look on his face was priceless,” said Patel. “Involving kids in a charity event at least gets them thinking about helping others in need. We hope events like these make a positive impact in the community.

Residents are encouraged to register for Trunk or Treat in advance. For additional information or to register call (908) 444-8634 or stop by Mr. Subs and speak to Amanda or Russ.
