Halloween Candy and Pumpkin Donations for UP Seniors

Here is something fun that we, as a community, can do to support our seniors locally.  Activity Director Emily Murer at University Place Care Center has a request for two things:  pumpkins for planned activities for the nursing home patients, and donated bags of wrapped candy for Halloween. 

Emily is seeking "...approximately *50 sugar pumpkins for activities at our intergenerational Halloween party (on the 31st) and perhaps two dozen full-size pumpkins for the residents to decorate/carve in the next couple weeks to decorate the building."  *Happily, they are already halfway to their goal for the sugar pumpkins and some other pumpkins have been brought in.  Special thanks to the donors!  

Donate additional pumpkins for the seniors to enjoy and the bags of wrapped Halloween candy for their big party on Halloween!  

Drop off donations during business hours at University Place Care Center, 5520 Bridgeport Way West, University Place, 98467.  Let's see what we can do to help achieve this goal for the seniors and their grandchildren.  Thank you in advance for your support.
