Creepy Hollow Woods recently donated $10,000 to the Santa Rosa Kids’ House in Milton. Founded in 2011 by Shane Haynes, the organization has grown into one of the top-rated haunted attractions not only in Florida, but in the nation.
Creepy Hollow Woods has donated to multiple programs such as Manna Food Bank and Toys For Tots, adding the Santa Rosa Kids House to their list in 2019. They have also donated to local schools such as Pace High School, Jay High School and Milton High School. In the past they have accepted minor donations for large discounts into their attraction. They have given $5 discounts for single cans of food, single toys, and items for Hurricane relief victims.
Creepy Hollow Woods pledged to replace and exceed what was lost when the funding from United Way was cut, leaving the Santa Rosa Kids House in the wind without their significant donation. After closing their 2019 haunt season this year, the organization presented Santa Rosa Kids House with a donation of $10,000 toward their program and needs.
