Del. Family Uses Scary Attraction to Raise Funds for Troops

Posted: Updated:

LAUREL, Del.- Just in time for Halloween, will you be the next brave visitor to venture through Slaughter House Farm?

"[Visitors are] going to see out-of-hand scarecrows, clowns and mazes and they're going to go through black mazes," said TJ Scott, whose family set up the Halloween attraction on their farm in Laurel.

The Scott family created Slaughterhouse Farm to benefit Operation We Care, which sends much-needed care packages to American soldiers serving overseas.

"Our son is also full-time military and he's deployed right now, " Scott said. "Operation We Care will send some packages over to him this year and his flight. So it means a lot to us; we are a military family."

Funding from this project will help defray the cost of mailing those packages.

Another project being funded through this fund raising effort is a pontoon boat specially rigged to take our wounded warriors and their families fishing.

Scott said that by visiting Slaughter House Farm, you will not only get an "awesome night' of scares; you will be supporting troops.

"We spent $21,000 last year on postage. We sent just over 1,600 care packages last year. We will do really close to that number this year," said Jeff Merritt, president of Operation We Care.

Slaughter House Farm address: 32076 Gordy Rd. Laurel Delaware 19956. Phone: (302) 381-2150. Web: www.slaughterhousefarm.org/
