The Red Ribbon carnival was held Saturday with a lot of the community coming out to support the cause.
Susan Lease, coordinator of the event, said she estimated there were 750 to 1,000 children that participated in games set up at the carnival, according to the amount of treat bags that were given away.
Lease said many of the businesses in town made donations to help buy the candy.
Doyle Frazier of the Ministry of Hope said the event was fantastic. He said more than 300 cans of food were donated.
