WIU Offering Alternative to Safe Trick-Or-Treat Programming
October 14, 2020
MACOMB, IL – University Housing and Dining Services (UHDS) at Western Illinois University will sponsor an alternative to the annual Residence Halls Safe Trick-or-Treat program.
Community and campus parents and guardians, with children between the ages 2-12, are invited to sign up for a Halloween goody bag, containing pre-wrapped candy, coloring pages and activities, and other Halloween-related items, to celebrate with at home. The bags are not gender or age specific.
Goody bags are limited, so children should sign up soon at bit.ly/UHDSGoodyBags.
“During COVID-19, we still wanted to find a way to connect to the campus and community to help the children have a safe and fun Halloween.” said WIU Director of Residence Life Mishelle Oaks. “We hope to be back next year with our annual safe trick-or-treat event in the residence halls.”
Goody bags will be available for pick up from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28 and from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29, behind Corbin Hall, in the drive through parking lot, off Western Avenue.
Children are not required to be present at time of pick up, but are encouraged and welcomed to be in the car. Pick up will be contactless, through a drive through, and face coverings should be worn.
