Use Your Leftover Halloween Goodies for Good!
As you think about purchasing goodies to hand out on Halloween, consider “What am I going to do with all my leftovers?” We have a wonderful opportunity to support a great local organization with those leftovers! PRM Cares is partnering with Refugee Support Services, a local organization that provides a multitude of programs to assist refugees who have been resettled in Charlotte.
Did you know that many refugees who are resettled in the United States never knew their birthday, and are assigned January 1st on their immigration papers? To celebrate their new life in America, Refugee Support Services sponsors a 01-01 birthday party for the refugee community. This event is full of fun activities for children, including carnival-type games with prizes.
As you shop for Halloween goodies, please consider purchasing non-candy items! After Halloween, we will organize a collection in the lobby area outside the office to collect our leftovers to donate to Refugee Support Services. Non-candy items like stickers, small trinkets and jewelry, crayons, etc. are appreciated so we can support RSS’s efforts at teaching good dental hygiene to our new international friends. We also highly encourage donations of fun kids’ toothbrushes and small toothpastes! After Halloween, look for the big donation bin and donate generously!!
