The children and families living at DOORWAYS’ Family Residential Complex were treated to a Halloween Party by the volunteers and staff of our Residential Program. As staff hung decorations and prepared food, kids dressed in their scariest costumes peered through the window in anticipation, begging to be let in early.
The party included two tables of games. One table was a cake walk where the winner got their choice from a table full of desserts. While the children competed in the cake walk, the adults played bingo for prizes such as t-shirt, treats and household goods. After gaming, people grabbed plates and were served hotdogs, chips, and drinks while a group of volunteers from Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield set up spooky science experiments upstairs. After eating, the kids went upstairs where they mixed products to create bubbly, colored liquid and had the option to either color and put stickers on pumpkins to make their own safer jack-o-lanterns. After all the fun, a final costume contest was held which included winners for cutest costume and scariest costume.
To close out the night everyone returned downstairs where candy bags were given out to each of the children. The turnout was great with virtually all children coming to celebrate. Staff, volunteers, and residents alike appeared to have an excellent time at the Halloween Party.
