Wabash Valley Correctional Facility
CARLISLE: Halloween was a howling success for Freddy Krueger and company, greeting visitors to the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility (WVCF) Haunted House!
“Fright Nights in the Valley,” now in its second spine tingling year, served a dual purpose, a fun event for Wabash staff, family and friends AND to scare up support for local charities. Admission was free, along with the hot chocolate and cookies, but donations of canned goods, toys or candy were gladly accepted. 22 new toys and $200 in cash donations will go to the Sullivan County Christmas For Kids drive.
Canned goods, 1,035 pounds worth, will help supply food banks in Knox, Greene and Sullivan County. WVCF staff donated their time and funds to make “Fright Nights in the Valley” possible.
The haunted house comes to life each year in the former facility carpenter shop behind the maximum-security prison. Organizer Frank Littlejohn (WVCF Assistant Superintendent) said work is already underway to make the 2016 version even better. Littlejohn added, “ It’s an awesome way to enjoy Halloween and give back to the community!”
