"It's meeting a need and that's the main thing. It's kids that would normally be on the streets and this way, we get to take care of the kids", says Danny Willingham.
But for Ashley Jackson, her time spent getting ready for the annual festivities is more like the ending to a fairytale.
"I'm a single mother and I wouldn't be able to pay the $800 a month for childcare after school", says Jackson.
What started as a means of daycare for the single mom, ended up being a life-changer for her family.
"I'm in school for psychology, I've always known that my passion was children", Jackson tells us.
And now with events like the "World of Terror", Jackson's goal is to help other kids in need.
"A lot of them call me mama here, they say 'Mama, I got some things going on, we need to do something'", Jackson explains.
Jackson, along with tens of other organizers, put their fake blood, cool sweat, and tears of fright into making this year's haunted house a spooktacular success.
This is the second year for the "World of Terror" event, and organizers say they expect around 2,000 kids to show up for the scary action. They raised over $5,000 last year for the Boys and Girls Club, and have even higher hopes for this year.
If you want to get in the haunted house, it will be open until midnight Thursday, and will run thru Saturday, and re-open on Halloween. And if you want to skip the scary stuff, there will also be live music from local bands each night. It will cost you $8 to get in.
