Save Halloween RECAP


The event highlight video from our YouTube channel!



COVID-19 has turned our world upside down. With so many social regulations put in place to flatten the curve, Halloween this year was expected to be a shadow of its former self. Not many parents were comfortable letting their kids roam the streets with crowds of people so most trick-or-treaters stayed home this year.


In the hope to spread a little joy (and candy) to the community, the Connect staff set hours of their time aside to handmake hundreds of goodie bags filled with candy. Each goodie bag also contained a note urging parents and adults to donate to children-based organizations such as the Boys & Girls Club and TeenFeed. Halloween is a time focused on spreading joy to the youth of our community and it's a great opportunity to help those who aren't as fortunate as we are. Donating to these organizations helps ensure that homeless children are fed, lonely children make friends, and the youth are given the proper tools to succeed. We STILL urge you all to donate to these organizations. If you don't know what organizations to donate to, check out our non-profits page!

After the Connect staff made the goodie bags, it was up to our volunteers to step up and donate them. Unsurprisingly, 32 special volunteers came forward to make a difference in their community, and together they donated goodie bags to over 200 houses in the area!

As we grow, we hope to reach even more people and contribute to causes far larger than our own. This event was dedicated to the kids and the future of our wonderful community. Thanks everyone for reading through the whole article! Enjoy some of the snaps from our event!


Thanks,
