Parents Organize Trick-or-Treat Alternative
Kids gather at the high school because of post-storm conditions
A group of parents organized an impromptu alternative to classic trick-or-treating Monday as many Mahwah families are still reeling from the effects of a weekend out-of-season snow storm. A trunk-or-treat session was held at the Mahwah High School Monday for kids who couldn't trick-or-treat in their neighborhoods.
"Because of all of the damage caused by the storm, a lot of the kids were not able to go trick-or-treating, so a couple of the moms got together and planned this event,"Albert Suied said.
Suied said that parents organized the entire event via email.
"The turnout was great and all the kids had a ball. It shows how a community pulls together during a crisis," he said.
Parents who participated in this year's event are going to attempt to make it an annual tradition in the township, Suied said.
