Halloween is a fun and exciting holiday for many in our communities. But when a family is struggling to make ends meet, the extra pressure of purchasing things like Halloween costumes can make holidays a stressful time for parents and kids.
Yesterday, two of our volunteers, J. and M., went to the Goodwill with a number of clients and purchased Halloween costumes. The kids were so excited with the fun “looks” they created, and the volunteers and parents were able to have the kids select a few “boring” but important items as well, including winter boots and jackets.
Thanks to all of our volunteers who help make holidays more fun and less stressful for our clients.
