Halloween Fun Pack Project COVID-19

Don't let COVID-19 take Halloween away from kids this year.

THE STORY

COVID-19 has already taken away many of our traditional holidays for 2020. Now, health experts are predicting the virus will spike again this fall -- just in time for Halloween.

Many children already have had their lives disrupted with the closure of schools planned to continue until January in some districts. Now, COVID-19 is threatening to take trick-or-treating away from them, too.

The Halloween Fun Pack Project aims to provide these kids with some sense of happiness and normalcy during a time that otherwise may be disappointing for them. Our goal is to mail up to 1,000 free "fun packs" with candy, stickers, trading cards and other surprises to children unable to go trick-or-treating this October. Parents in areas where trick-or-treating is canceled or limited by public order, or who just don't feel safe taking their kids trick-or-treating this year, will have the opportunity to register to receive the fun packs.

This project will be 100 percent funded by donors and sponsors, and 100 percent of funds collected will directly benefit the initiative. The organizer has more than 15 years of experience in the non-profit, not-for-profit and community sector, and has overseen several award-winning projects. For more information, please visit the Halloween Fun Pack website.

Every $4 raised puts a Halloween Fun Pack in the hands of a child, giving them a sense of normalcy and joy during this pandemic.
