ALLERGY AWARENESS THIS HALLOWEEN Join Us In Raising Awareness of Food Allergies by Placing a Teal Pumpkin on Your Porch and Offering a Separate Bowl of Non-Edible Items for Trick-or-Treaters
October is one of the happiest seasons for families, filled with lots of fun things to do– especially for kids. From pumpkin patches and apple orchards, to haunted houses and Halloween parties, calendars fill up fast as residents get ready for spooktacular fun leading up to the big day– October 31st. Though Halloween is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year for kids, it unfortunately can be a scary time for some. This is because of the food allergy epidemic that families are facing today and the risks involved for kids with allergies while trick-or-treating. This Halloween we encourage all homes to participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project which raises awareness of food allergies. Simply place a teal pumpkin on the porch to show trick-or-treaters that you also offer non-edible treats. You don’t have to stop passing out candy, you would just make non-edible treats available as well in a completely different bowl to remain careful. Ideas include stickers, pencils and other fun items available online at Oriental Trading Co. and at local Party City stores. Many of us on #TeamGlancer plan to do this at our homes and we hope you will join us in this special awareness campaign. Enjoy this issue filled with countless fall events and activities, fall invitations, resident features and more. Happy Autumn and thanks so much for reading! Your support means the world to all of us at Glancer Magazine.
