Stories with Friends: Part 21

A Halloween Treat

With Halloween right around the corner, our most senior Friend and mentor Joe took it upon himself to do something special and fun for all his youth. "Reverse trick or treating," is where the adult goes door to door dressed up as something fun and drops off a bag of goodies for the kids. Joe took it upon himself to find a way during this challenging time to spread joy. He remembers how fun it was when he was a child to dress up and celebrate Halloween and now the youth he serves get to create similar fond memories. The idea caught on and now many of the other mentors here in Central Oregon can be spotted dressed up in a fun costume delivering goodies door to door.
