Students Walk in Halloween Costumes to Benefit Rescue Mission

Kids at Ballenger Creek Middle School took part in the 'Help the Homeless Mini-Walk" at their school to raise money for the Frederick Rescue Mission.
FREDERICK, Md. - Students in Frederick sported creative costumes Thursday for a good cause.

Kids at Ballenger Creek Middle School took part in the 'Help the Homeless Mini-Walk" at their school to raise money for the Frederick Rescue Mission.

Each student donated at least $1 to walk. The school raised $800, which a donor will double.

"The money goes to people that need food and help and shelter, and they don't have it on their own, so they need it," said Cassidy Farmer, a 6th grader.

The students say they had a fun time dressing up and know the importance of the walk.

"I think it's important because it's helping people in need of food and water. If I was in the situation, then I would want help also," said Danielle Wilson, a 6th grader.

Middletown Middle School, Rock Creek School, and New Life Christian School also hosted a walk to benefit the mission.
