The Halloween party on Wednesday was a great event. It went off without too many hiccups (a few are inevitable for holding a big event) and the students really looked like they were having fun.
The party was "Trick or Treat so Others can Eat." Our students went trick-or-treating with their mentors and in addition to collecting candy, collected canned goods to donate to the Holy Family Shelter. Having our students involved in community service projects is one of the things we encourage at Starfish. Our students may live at or just above the poverty level themselves, but part of the work we do at Starfish is leadership training to help these students understand that they can give back to their own community.
The food drive collected more than 1,000 items to donate to the shelter!
And here's some photographic proof of the fun that was had by all.
