Children in foster care get halloween presents

On Halloween, TWR threw a party for 70 foster children at Olive Crest –an organization that is dedicated to preventing child abuse, treating and educating at-risk children and preserving families in Los Angeles. The kids and volunteers were definitely in the Halloween spirit. Along with dressing up, the children were also able to carve pumpkins. And of course, there was no shortage of candy!

We loved putting our heads together with Olive Crest to create a fun and exciting event for the kids so that they could take part in this holiday. And what makes for a good party? Having plenty of people to share it with! It was a monster mash of a good time, and we’re happy to have been able to spread the joy to so many kids!

Thank you to the volunteers and contributors for making this event possible, and for giving foster children the chance to enjoy and revel in the festivities and fun of Halloween!
