Your help is needed for Safe Trick-or-Treat: trick-or-treat stops, carnival booth, donate a costume or just volunteer to help out

Sep 29, 2014

It's that time of year again! The 16th Annual Safe Trick-or-Treat event is coming to campus on October 29 from 4-7 p.m.

Pacific's largest community service activity is designed to provide a safe environment for families to enjoy trick-or-treating. During the event, members of the Pacific community will hand out candy to children ages 3-11 as they pass through campus office buildings and residence halls on trick-or-treat tours. From there participants will be invited to a carnival hosted by Pacific's very own clubs, organizations and athletics teams. Last year, an estimated 4,000 children and adults took part in the trick-or-treat tours and carnival.

Tour stops will be open at various locations starting at 4 p.m. with an information tent located at the Atchley Clock Tower on south campus. The carnival will be held on the DeRosa University Center Lawn. All Pacific faculty, staff and students are welcome to bring their families and children to this free event.

We need your help!!
For on-campus departments and student groups, if you're interested in hosting a stop, carnival booth or simply volunteering your time, please register via this simple interactive form by Oct. 22.

We are also accepting new and gently used costumes and costume accessories (all sizes/ages 2-11, including adult sizes) to support children in the Stockton community via Haven of Peace, The Gospel Center Rescue Mission, One TLC School, and children who arrive at our event without a Halloween costume. 

Drop off your donation by noon on Monday, October 27, at any of these locations: Housing & Greek Life Office, Burns Tower Lobby, PHS 108 (OSP Office), and Hand Hall Suite 135 (Student Life Office).
