2020 has proven to be a difficult and disappointing year for many. East Haddam’s Project Safe Halloween Committee did not want to add one more disappointment to our kids this year. After many months of meetings and planning sessions East Haddam’s Project Safe Halloween Committee came up with a “Covid Safe” Halloween option for our residents. With cooperation from Nathan Hale-Ray Middle School a drive-thru style trick or treating event was planned.
Despite the cold weather, numerous youth and adult volunteers helped to create a Halloween themed experience with about 20 organizations handing out candy to families dressed in costumes and decorated cars. Over $1800.00 dollars of candy was purchased by the committee from donations collected by residents and local businesses.
Over 700 people attended the Project Safe Halloween drive-thru.
The Project Safe Halloween Committee would like to thank all of the volunteers that helped to make this a fun and safe night, our donors that make Project Safe Halloween possible, and all of the families that came out to show off their fun and scary costumes.
