The Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield is offering a socially distanced, spooky, fun option to families on Halloween this year. On Saturday, October 31, 2020, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., the Boys & Girls Club invites families to a “Grab & Go Trick or Treat” event at 37 Proprietor’s Drive in Marshfield, MA 02050.
The Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield offers an alternative to traditional trick or treating this year – a drive-through trick or treat option.
As cars enter the Boys & Girls Club driveway, volunteers wearing costumes will line-up and provide the children in each car with bags of Halloween treats. All volunteers will be physically distanced, and families stay safely in their car.
There will be an optional “photo booth” for kids who would like pictures taken. This event is FREE to all children.
According to Jim Bunnell, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield, “As we’ve heard warnings in the news about groups gathering and going out on Halloween, we’re providing a safer option with a fun drive-thru trick or treat for families.”
Supporting Youth, Families and the Community in an uncertain time
The Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield is working with the Marshfield Food Pantry, the Town of Marshfield, guidelines from the state and the Marshfield Public Schools and other service organizations to provide critical services the community needs to support children and families over the short- and long-term. Among the steps they have taken to meet ongoing needs include: food distribution to food insecure families (hundreds of healthy meals per week in the form of Grab & Go meal boxes, drive-thru dinners and more); providing a safe place for kids while many parents and guardians return to work; and serving as a resource for the Board of Health and other departments to further assist families. Currently, the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield provides breakfast before school, remote support learning during the day, and traditional after school care for 100 students per day.
