BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - It’s finally October, and with that comes cold weather, spooky decorations, and everyone’s favorite holiday: Halloween. The Student Auxiliary Club of Governor Livingston High School met during lunch on Tuesday, October 16th to create Halloween themed goodie bags for children at The Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside. This hospital is one of the best in the nation, specializing in care for children from infants to age 21. Children with disabilities and illnesses look to this hospital for ongoing care and assistance. They definitely deserve a treat. 

Members of Student Auxiliary decorated brown bags with stickers and pictures, then filled them with Halloween themed items like pencils, erasers, plastic spiders, rings, glow-sticks and more. The goodie bags will be delivered to the hospital in time for Halloween. Victoria Mauri, a member of Student Auxiliary, said, “It was so fun decorating the bags and filling them with goodies. It’s nice to know that they will put a smile on the children’s faces.”

Student Auxiliary gives students an opportunity to give back to people in their community, including those who are extra deserving. Taking part in Student Auxiliary events provides a great way to put a smile on someone’s face!
