Charity Scares 

The kid-friendly North Kansas City Haunted House (830 East 21st Street) has been haunted this year by the spooky economic collapse. Organizer Shannon Cousins says, “We’re running into a few minor issues getting supplies we need. We’ve been reaching out to community organizations for monetary donations to get supplies we need. Fox News came and did a 30-second segment about it, but it didn’t get us exactly the attention we’re looking for. A couple of not-for-profits in their own financial distress — the Jaycees and the Gladstone Oddfellows — have been trying to help as much as they can.” Still, Cousins insists the house will be open at 7 p.m. today (and Friday night at the same time). “This year, we thought we’d help out some charitable organizations via donations — we’re asking people to bring non-perishable items and money to help out families in need. We help three or four families on thanksgiving, three or four families on Christmas. Any leftovers will go to Harvesters.”
Fri., Oct. 30, 7 p.m.; Sat., Oct. 31, 7 p.m., 2009
