Trunk or Treat debuted at KidWorks in 2018 and returns after we skipped the event in 2020 due to the pandemic.

“Trunk or Treat creates a space and a way for everyone–partners, volunteers, staff, students and parents–to enjoy decorating and donating at Halloween,” says Rachel Cervantes, our Arts Coordinator. “KidWorks thanks everyone who donates, participates and volunteers, making this event one our students are very eager to see return.”
