Haunted House

A Homeless Halloween for Those Who Need It Most

There’s an electricity within the shelter tonight, an energy I haven’t felt in any other facility like this. Despite the rather dire environment, a different kind of mask is being worn in the halls. We’ve all come together to give the children in the shelter a Halloween trick-or-treating experience; we are each sitting in offices and rooms with bowls of candy, the children have costumes made of pyjamas and hand-made masks, and hot-dogs, hamburgers, and cupcakes are waiting in the kitchen for afterwards.
