The Sussex County Family Success Center at Project Self-Sufficiency recently hosted a Halloween “Spooktacular” for hundreds of costume-clad children and their parents at the agency’s Newton campus. Participants were treated to crafts, dinner, Halloween-themed games, and other activities courtesy of agency staff members and a host of community volunteers including the Newton High School Interact Club. All of the children received a souvenir photo and goody bag.
“The mission of the Family Success Center is to bring the community together in support of adults, teens and children. The Halloween Party is one of the many events hosted here which allows parents and children to relax and have fun together,” explains Deborah Berry-Toon, Executive Director of Project Self-Sufficiency where the Sussex County Family Success Center is housed. “We are very grateful for the efforts of the Family Success Center Parent Advisory Board and all of the other volunteers who worked so hard to host this party for our participants and their families.”
