Trunk or Treat @ FRCC Hosting Costume Drive to Help Benefit Sacramento Families

Almost 17 percent of families in Sacramento County are living below the poverty level.  In the 95820 zip code these percentages are even higher at a staggering 53 percent.  Financial stress can mean a lot of pressure and anxiety around everyday tasks.

 

Holidays (though joyous and fun) can add additional pressure to all of us, including those families that might be in survival mode on a daily basis.

 

Life circumstances should never get in the way of families being able to fully participate in holidays and community events like Halloween.  PRO Youth and Families wants to ensure that each family can have a stress free Halloween by providing a safe place to trick or treat and the opportunity to get a free costume.

 

PRO will be collecting costumes throughout September and October and will donate them to local families in Sacramento County.  These costumes will allow families to feel comfortable fully participating in the festivities of Halloween.  And these memories will live on much longer than October 31st.

 

Costume donation locations can be found in three places across Sacramento:
