Chatonia, Shoneka, Katherine, and Joshalynn of ALIVE’s crisis intervention team get into the spirit of Halloween and make sure families in our Nights of Safety emergency shelter have a special celebration.
Thanks to our generous donors and dedicated staff, ALIVE’s first Halloween Drive was a great success! Supporters dropped off candy and gently used costumes at the Maryland Heights Police Department OR donated online to ensure the kids we serve had a fun Halloween celebration.
Members of ALIVE’s crisis intervention team gathered the donations to organize a Trunk or Treat for children in our Nights of Safety emergency shelter program. The families were able to enjoy face painting, pumpkin decorating, Halloween music, pizza, and (of course) a lot of candy! One of the parents even pitched in to help with face painting. Thanks to your donations, these children, who are dealing with family challenges and instability that no child should have to face, were able to dress up in costumes and not feel left out of the Halloween fun. THANK YOU!
