The Wilson Primary Center 'family' -- Children, parents, and staff -- gathered to support the Teal Pumpkin Project, which is designed to raise awareness about food allergies and ensure that every child is able to experience the joy and tradition of trick-or-treating on Halloween.
Since most candy is off-limits for those with food allergies, some kids can get left out of the fun. The Teal Pumpkin Project encourages those handing out treats to offer non-food treats, such as glow sticks or small toys, as an alternative to candy. Last year, households from all 50 states and 14 countries participated.
The painted pumpkins will be handed out at the Summit PAL Halloween Parade October 29 and post-parade at the Village Green.
