GRAND JUNCTION, Colo (KKCO) - A local real estate agency is taking to the streets in their Halloween costumes to help make sure Grand Valley children don't go hungry.

The Remax 4000 team is currently holding a canned food and donation drive that will benefit the children's backpack program in Mesa County -- a program that sends backpacks full of food home with thousands of needy students in the Grand Valley so they don't go hungry over the weekend.

Non-perishable food items can be dropped off at the Remax 4000 offices at 120 West Park Drive, near the intersection of 1st Street and Patterson Road. Agents dressed up in Halloween costumes are also collecting money donations that will be used to purchase more food. Donations can be made at the corner of 1st and Patterson and at the City Market store at the intersection of 1st and Orchard.

"The need of the children, I think that speaks to your heart," says Toni Milyard, Broker / Owner of Remax 4000. "There's so many kids going home over the weekend without food and with these funds and food they can have some full tummies over the weekend."

The drive will continue through 2 p.m. Wednesday.
