In case you haven’t noticed by everything pumpkin, it’s October which means that very soon little ghosts and goblins will be going door to door begging for candy from all their neighbors.
We’re sure that many of you and your family are in preparations for trick-or-treat. From finding the perfect costume to carving pumpkins we are all in the process of being prepared for one of the most jovial holiday traditions in America.
We aren’t exactly preparing for trick-or-treat as much as we are getting ready for our annual fall Party-in-the-Park which takes place on October 22nd at Wheaton Park in Hagerstown.
Our Party-in-the-Park is a great outreach opportunity for us to get into one of the neighborhoods around The Hope Center to meet neighbors and build relationships with them. One of the big attractions at our Party-in-the-Park is the giant candy scramble.
But to make the giant candy scramble possible we need tons of candy. And we’re asking for your assistance. We need as many bags of individually wrapped candy donated as possible. Candy is expensive but if each of us buy one or two bags then we can easily make this a great event for our neighbors in the Jonathan Street neighborhood.
The next time you go to your favorite grocer please remember us and the people we’ll be ministering to and grab a bag or more of candy for our event. Candy donation is a great way to get your church, workplace or civic club involved.
The Party-in-the-Park is on Saturday, October 22nd so we are asking that all donated candy please be dropped off at our Administrative Office by Wednesday, October 19th. Our office is open M-F 8:30am-4:30pm.
For questions about the event or candy donations or for more information please call 301.739.1165 or email us at email@example.com.
