Halloween and Teens

Original post made by Nancy Brown, Evergreen Park, on Oct 24, 2011

It is Halloween again and a great time of year to bring neighborhoods together! Last week the Project Safety speaker, Clay Roberts, suggested that 78% of our teens believe that adults and communities do not value them - but we can do something about that!

Years ago the Palo Alto Bowl did a special costume Halloween night for teens. Of course that can't happen any more. :(

Is the Winter Lodge doing a special costume event?

They can come by our place and hang out with the aliens who crashed on our roof on Vernon Terrace! :0)

Teens can have so much fun at Halloween and should be encouraged by people - to stay kids - dress up and- volunteer to help at shopping areas that encourage younger people to trick-or-treat, helping at crosswalks, doing scavenger hunts instead of trick-or-treating, reverse trick-or-treating - taking candy to shut ins or old folks in neighborhood, collecting canned goods for a local food bank ....... You are never too old to enjoy Halloween!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
