8th Annual Trunk or Treat with GLC

The 8th annual Trunk or Treat event at the Great Lakes Center for Autism Treatment and Research was filled with smiling faces and laughter!

A huge thank you to Southwest Michigan Behavioral Health for sponsoring Porter, the mascot from the Kalamazoo Growlers baseball team, and for providing 40 pumpkins for the “Pumpkin Walk”.  The interactions with Porter and the opportunity for the youth to win a pumpkin made everyone smile.

We were delighted to have the animals from ACCORN Farm. So much fun for the families to pet goats and chickens in the city!

We are grateful to the organizations and families who provided the prizes for the best-decorated trunks and best costumes… the organizations include Latitude 42, RJ’s, Erbelli’s Gourmet Pizzeria, Italian Bistro & Pub, Studio C (Celebrations Cinema).

We really appreciate all of those who donated treats, decorated their trunks, and handed out goodies, as well as our volunteers, mascots Sparkita from the Portage Fire Department, Spectrum from the WMU Department of Psychology, and Porter from the Kalamazoo Growlers, and all of our other community partners.

Thank you, City of Portage Fire Department for your service and for participating in the Trunk or Treat event.

This event truly takes a community … thank you to each and every person who participated!
