A 19-year-old in Estero has created a Halloween display to support the relief effort after Hurricane Ian.

He comes up with the display every year, but this time the donations will go toward the post-Ian recovery.

Nick’s haunted house includes scary clown decorations and displays that younger children can enjoy too.

“This one’s a little bit more kid-friendly. And on Halloween night, this entire driveway, the whole house is going to be done. So it’s going to be a lot larger,” Nick said.

He has a graveyard on his front line filled with skeletons. And he funds his Halloween display himself.

“I’ve always loved doing this. And, you know, I’m wanting to use my position and like, kind of passion to help the community out. I think that’s important because, you know, I always do this, but now that I can utilize it for something more,” Nick said.

The teen was fortunate during Hurricane Ian but many were not as lucky.

He wants to use his blessing and spread the holiday spirit and help many others.

“Especially with everything that happened last month,” Nick said. “A lot of people have lost cars and their houses flooded.”

Nick began working on his display prior to Ian’s arrival, but had to take it apart before it hit.

He got to work on it after the storm again.

When parents take their kids trick-or-treating to the Estero home, they can donate through Nick’s billboard which will have a QR code to make the process easier.
