COVID-19 MAY KEEP MANY CHILDREN FROM TRICK-OR-TREATING THIS YEAR
TO HELP KIDS HAVE FUN AT HOME
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to ravage the U.S. and the world, causing economic turmoil and forcing most to alter the their daily lives, the virus also has robbed many of traditional celebrations, from Easter and Mother's Day to birthdays and family vacations.
With health officials predicting a resurgence of the virus this fall, many states still on some form of lockdown this summer, and some school systems anticipating children may not return to normal schedules until 2021 at the earliest, autumn and winter festivities may be next in the crosshairs.
The Halloween Fun Pack Project aims to provide children throughout the U.S. with a free packet of candy and non-candy treats in the mail during the last week of October if they are unable to go trick-or-treating due to local stay-at-home orders, parental concerns about the virus or other COVID-19 related issues.
Halloween may be different this year, but through the generosity of donors and sponsors, we hope to provide a bit of happiness and normalcy for hundreds of children nationwide during this time of uncertainty for them and their parents.
