Fair-goers who bring five canned goods will receive a ticket for a raffle to win a wheelbarrow or a garden cart. A raffle ticket can also be purchased for $3 or $15 for six tickets. Donations can include canned foods, rice, spaghetti and other pastas, cereal, peanut butter, and tomato sauce. Monetary donations will also be accepted. Thomas said all proceeds will go to Carroll County Food Sunday.

"We wanted to keep the proceeds local so we can help our neighbors in Carroll County," Thomas said.
