DOTHAN, AL (WTVY) -- The calendar isn't lying, Halloween is only days away, but right now, in Panama City, the horror is all too real.
Cheryl Harbison says, "It's the impact of it all, I mean those children, you don't think about what they're going through, with the noises and the change, and this will be something for most of them, they will never forget this."
Cheryl, along with her sister, Lisa Starnes have started their own event, calling it, Sister Sweets Trunk or Treat.
The two have been busy getting costumes, makeup, and putting together goody bags over the last week.
Starnes says, "We've received some candy donations, cash donations to help purchase candy, and then what we have gotten personally, we're still taking in for costumes, toys, anything."
The two women know that taking the time to reach out now could change someone's life forever.
Cheryl tells us, "In their memory, they'll grow up one day and say, when I was little, we lost everything, yet we still had a halloween. And you know, that to me is huge."
Both of them said they're heading down early on Saturday, October 27th to Straightway Ministries in Panama City.
The event will run from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M., and the church will serve hot food to the kids and their families.
If you would like to donate costumes or candy, you can reach Cheryl at (334)-796-1284 or Lisa at (334)-488-5868
