Throughout the end of October, dinosaurs, cartoon characters, and cowboys were all around Eden Autism as students, adult participants, and staff celebrated Halloween.
At the school, teachers turned the outdoor walking path into a spooky walkway featuring ghosts, witches, and jack-o’-lanterns. Teachers and staff handed out candy along the socially distanced pathway as students went trick-or-treating in their costumes. At the end of the path, they were greeted by a pumpkin patch where they could pick their own pumpkin to take home.
At the adult day centers, staff organized Halloween costume parties for the men and women Eden supports. Staff also set up trunk-or-treating activities in the parking lots to ensure everyone was able to get plenty of candy and tasty treats.
One group home even got a special Halloween treat from their neighbors! The Women’s Club of Cranbury, a volunteer women’s service organization, stopped by Eden’s newest residence in Cranbury to deliver pizza and ghost goodie bags to welcome the participants to town.
Thank you to all our staff and neighbors who helped make this Halloween a special one for our participants!
