COLLEGE TO HOST HALLOWEEN PARTY FOR FLOOD VICTIMS


10/22/2004

Pittsburgh, PA -- As many as 400 children in Millvale and Etna whose families were impacted by last month’s severe flooding will be able to enjoy Halloween this year thanks to the efforts of students, staff and faculty at La Roche College. The College will host a free Halloween party on Saturday, October 30 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Millvale Riverfront Park on Riverfront Drive in Millvale. Those in attendance can participate in a variety of games and activities, enjoy food and gather candy. Fire departments and EMS crews who responded to emergencies during the floods will be distributing treats to the children. In addition, youngsters can pose for pictures with the Great Pumpkin.

Families in Millvale and Etna have told organizers of the party that their children have a significant need for school supplies. Students, staff and faculty at La Roche College have solicited donations, which have been used to purchase notebooks and pencils. Organizers will be distributing those items to families at the party along with the traditional Halloween treats. Any items not distributed at the party will be donated to North Hills Community Outreach in Allison Park, an organization that continues to assist those affected by the September floods.
