141027-Trick-or-Treat

For children around the world, Halloween is one of the best nights of the year. After all, when else can they dress however they choose and stock up on endless amounts of candy? While the spirit of the holiday is meant to be celebrated in good fun, Halloween can be dangerous if children and their parents aren’t careful. Follow these tips to ensure that you have both a spooky and safe Halloween.

  1. Plan your route. Planning in advance where you’ll be going can help you and your child stay on the same page and avoid getting lost. Some families may not live in a trick-or-treat-friendly area. If you’re traveling outside your neighborhood, consider showing your child the route before the holiday.
  2. Plan your group. Avoid trick-or-treating alone at all costs. If you can’t go with your child, ensure that they are with another trusted adult. Consider forming a group in your neighborhood to walk together. There is safety in numbers.

To show appreciation for their contributions to the L.A. Chapter, The Charitable Foundation is partnering with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties and Pickford Escrow to host a fun-filled day at the Los Angeles Zoo for agents, employees and donors. The event takes place on November 15 from 10 a.m. until closing and will include free goodie bags for the children, breakfast and an opportunity to visit the Zoo’s newest exhibit, “Rainforest of the Americas.”

The event is being made possible in part due to the L.A. Chapter’s business level sponsorship of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association. “We are proud that we have been able to contribute resources to the zoo and their programs for over 10 years,” said Natalie Hill, foundation manager. “I would like to thank everyone at the zoo for making this happen, especially Jan Frazier, director of corporate and foundation relations.” (more…)
