Clean out your pantry for a good cause

Packrat Comics in Hilliard will trade comics for canned goods on Oct. 26 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The event also includes costume contests and crafts for the kids. Families can have their photo taken in Packrat's pumpkin patch. The store is located at 3864 Lattimer St. in Hilliard.

"It's a free afternoon of fun all while doing good for those less fortunate," said owner Teresa Colegrove, who has organized the event for the last eight years.
