Trick or Treat: Local Children Experience Halloween on HPU Campus
Seven-year-old Elijah King ran to his “Big Brother,” HPU senior Garin Tracy, showing him the bag he was given to collect candy.
“Elijah has been my little since I joined over a year ago, and he has really started to open up to me. For the last few weeks, he’s been talking about this day,” said Tracy, looking down at King. “He looks really excited right now.”
“This is a great community tradition that I’m excited to carry on,” said Nicole Garafola, resident director for the Women’s Complex. “It’s a day that brings a lot of joy to the kids and we love getting to see them interact and have fun.”
