Frightful Friends Help Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park
HACKENSACK, NJ – From now through the end of October, Halloween enthusiasts can stroll down Clinton Place, enjoy the eerie sights and sounds of the season and help Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park make life anything but scary for the orphaned animals in its care.
One family taking part in the annual neighborhood-wide Halloweenfest uses this opportunity to raise funds for AHS. Walk about halfway down the block – if you dare – to the Victorian house with the big skull on the third floor porch owned by the Romero family, and there, volunteers will be handing out treats and collecting donations for The Society.
The neighborhood celebration, which began in the mid-1990s, continues to grow each year with about two dozen individual families collecting monies for about six of their favorite charities.
Along with donations, the Romero family will welcome any volunteers who want to help collect donations during the nightly event. Persons interested in helping out should stop by the Romero house as early in the evening as possible and join in the fun.
“They may be dressed as ghouls and devils, but our Clinton Place supporters are truly Associated Humane Societies’ guardian angels,” said Roseann Trezza, Executive Director, AHS/Popcorn Park. “We hope that anyone in the Hackensack area, stops by for some frightful fun, and while there, makes a generous donation to Associated Humane Societies.”
