Alma Bryant High School’s Youth Activist Coalition will be hosting their annual Sweets and Treats on October 31st from 5-7pm at Alma Bryant High School.
Sweets and Treats is a tradition that has been around for many years. The beginning of this family friendly project started in 2006 after the disastrous Hurricane Katrina swept through our streets. Founder of Sweets and Treats, Mrs. Miracle said, “After such a disaster kids sought for something normal and uplifting.” For the first two years Sweets and Treats was held at Alba Middle School, but it has been at home at Bryant for the last nine years.
Sweets and Treats is free to the public, and while sponsored by Youth Activist Coalition several different organizations donate time and candy to the event. These organization set up booths with activities and prizes for the Trick-or-Treaters. NHS member, Parker Arrington reports, “Members donate candy and dress-up for the night.” This year the first 800 people get free hotdogs.
Sweets and Treats is a place where kids come together for fun, food, and family.
