Elementary aged trick-or-treaters were welcomed to the Westwood parking lot for the annual Trunk-or-Treat event on Tuesday, Oct. 30. Trunk-or-Treat was hosted by the Family and Community Services class so that children could trick-or-treat in a safe environment near their neighborhoods.
“It’s a safe place for the little kids to get candy for Halloween if it’s dangerous for them in their neighborhood,” Janice Oh ‘19 said, “It’s a great way for the high schoolers to give back to their community.”
Kids came dressed in costume and went from trunk to trunk, collecting candy from the various clubs who came and decorated a space.
“My favorite part is seeing all the little ones in their costumes. Sometimes they match with their parents and that is the cutest thing in the world,” Oh said.
Each of the clubs involved spent preparing for the night and creating decorations to impress the younger kids.
“I asked my mom if I could borrow some leftover Halloween decorations we had and then I picked up all my friends and drove them here,” Abby Holden ‘19 said. “I love trying to get my friends to dress up for the kids.”
Overall, Trunk-or-Treat provided an opportunity for elementary schoolers to have fun and get candy in a safe manner.
