When our local communities ask for help, Discover Books endeavors to make it possible. With the pandemic came disappointment for children this Halloween, but the Hammond, Indiana community thought outside the box and came up with a safe alternative - drive-through trunk or treat.
"Dear Community Supporter:
In keeping with safe options for families with children in
these unusual times, the City of Hammond will provide a new Halloween option to
area families by having a Drive Through Trunk or Treat on Friday, October 30
from 5-7 pm. We are asking local companies who have been supportive of
this type of event in the past to consider participating by decorating a
vehicle and passing out candy/goodies/coupons. Should your company decide to partner
with us for this fun event, it will be an opportunity to market to 1,000 Region
families while having loads of fun.
Attached is the event flyer and the vendor
application. Please feel free to post this flyer and should you decide to
join us, fill this out and get it back to me by September 30. We will
then follow up and assign you a numbered spot in the route along with any
Thank you so much for your consideration. Feel free to
contact me with any questions."
The evening was a complete success. Every child was given a book, candy, and a bookmark with discount codes for later savings. The team had an amazing evening keeping Halloween magic alive for 1000s of local children and families. To read the news article click here.
