Halloween Day of Fun!

Sunday, before Sandy’s arrival in Philadelphia, I had a truly incredible day with some of the kids of Tree House Books!

Temple HANDS hosted an event called “Kids Halloween Day of Fun” in the student center, featuring pumpkin painting, face painting, music, dancing and lots and lots of candy! The Young Friends had a table with an activity based off an awesome Halloween book- the kids made either a spider or a cat out of paper plates to make a candy holder! As I stapled and folded papers, I looked around to over 50 kids running around in costumes, dancing and on a complete sugar high and could not help but smile at how much fun everyone was having. The kids had face paint all over, bags of candy and were strutting their stuff in the Halloween costume fashion show. The event concluded with a dance party that had everyone, including parents and volunteers, up and dancing. We did the wobble, cha-cha slide and many other dances and had a complete blast. Although I can honestly say I did not know many of the songs and especially the dances that went along with them, I was having a great time watching the 6 Tree House kids break it down and truly having an incredible time.

The day was truly special, being able to bring the kids to Temple’s campus, let them completely unleash and have a great time.

About Bake Sales and Boot Camp

I am Brianna Rooney and I just finished my sophomore year at Temple University where I am studying public relations and French. This past year at Temple I learned so much, particularly of my interest for non-profit public relations through volunteering at Tree House Books. I am the secretary of Young Friends of Tree House Books where Temple students fund-raise for Tree House as well as on the executive board of Temple's chapter of PRSSA where I serve as the Historian/ Alumni Relations chair as well as a staff member of PRowl Public Relations. As I learn more about myself, and what I want to do with my future, I will be sharing it here, all of my experiences, whether finding a new recipe or a great internship, I cannot wait to share it with you!
