PITT COUNTY, N.C. (WNCT) Sheriff Paula Dance and the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office held a COVID-19 safe drive-thru trunk or treat for the community on Friday. The event was supposed to run from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., but was so popular they ran out of candy within the first hour.
The event was held in the parking lot between Pitt County Board of Elections and Pitt Area Transit (PATS) Office behind the old hospital (county administration building) at 1717 W. 5th Street in Greenville.
“This is our way of giving back to the community that we serve. When they see us in this capacity, it helps them trust us when we have to go into another capacity,” said Deputy Freda Godley-Hines.
The first 300 kids who are in Kindergarten through 5th grade received a free drawstring bag, popcorn and candy.
