The Kansas City Atheist Coalition volunteered at Spofford Home, a leading provider of prevention and therapeutic treatment services for children ages 4 to 12 suffering the effects of physical and sexual abuse, neglect and mental health disorders. This year, we brought Halloween to the children at Spofford Home.
Our members dressed up as various characters to focus on a fun festive time while providing a positive atmosphere for the children. We brought various Halloween-themed books and read with groups of children. In addition, we brought miniature pumpkins, paints and various crafts so they could paint jack-0-lanterns. After they completed painting their jack-o-lanterns, every child received trick-0-treat Halloween candy for participating.
Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year. 🙂
