The original purpose created a safe space for children to enjoy an alternative to Halloween. It's grown to include free groceries for the food insecure, free back packs with school supplies, and free health screenings and more. The children participate in fun educational activities while the parents enjoy live entertainment. On the last Saturday of October we renew our commitment to the community. The 2022 theme is Harambee: " Live in Yo Face 2022!!" and our overall mission is to educate and unify all generations, cultures, and social groups. This year, as never before, in the aftermath of the Covid-19 Pandemic, our community needs this event. We will have FREE treat bags. There is an expectation of over 50+ Community Partners, and vendors, 100+ Volunteers and 1000+ families to attend. Our 50+ volunteers earned community service hours and a free lunch. Fifty percent of vendor fees benefit the MLK Jr Community Center LIRA Group. A list of events will soon be announced.
