Gillis Center is hosting a Trunk or Treat for the kids living at Gillis Center. The kids will start walking at 3:30pm. Please arrive at 3pm to get set up.
Here’s how we can help….
Volunteers to decorate their vehicle trunk (google for ideas/pictures) and come to Gillis for the Trunk or Treat. Please arrive by 3:00 pm to get parked and set up.
Volunteers to dress up and bring at least 2 bags of Halloween candy to give out to the kids. (dress up = something simple or go all out, your choice). You are welcome to bring homemade treats (plan for 35 individually wrapped caramel apples, popcorn balls, brownies, cookies, etc). Please arrive by 3pm to get matched to volunteer/trunk.
Kids are welcome to join you in handing out treats.
Gillis Center is a healing place for at-risk children and families, providing education, counseling, social service, residence and emergency shelter. The children who live there, the boys and girls who attend their school-based day treatment, and the troubled families who go to heal; all have a story. Some stories are horrific and traumatic, some sad, some infuriating but almost all of them have the same ending: Hurting people made whole again at Gillis.
