Halloween is coming, so Trunk & Treat!

Torrance’s Volunteer Center needs our help to feed Torrance families. They are hosting a Trunk & Treat event October 28 to collect food donations as their pantry is bare.  The Center’s CEO, Sara Myers, stated “The local families that participate in this program are so grateful for the support, but right now we don’t have enough food to meet the weekly needs. Our goal is to collect 5,000 pounds of food which will provide 2,183 meals.”

The Center invites the whole community to fill their vehicle trunks with boxes of cereal; cans of meat, vegetables and fruit; and other nonperishable food items like pasta, rice and beans; and safely drop them off in the parking lot of 1230 Cravens Avenue in Downtown Torrance on Thursday, October 28, between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m.

The RHA supports their effort and encourage you to please share with your friends, family, and neighbors. Click here for more details about the Food for Kids Program

The Riviera Village Halloween Trick or Treat is back!

This Riviera Village event has become a South Bay tradition, attracting thousands of children each year to enjoy Halloween in a safe, outdoor and fun atmosphere.

Catalina Avenue will be closed to traffic from Avenue I to Palos Verdes Blvd. Shops will hand out candy and treats outdoors. Make an evening of it, and stop for dinner in one of the many restaurants in the Village.
Here’s a tip: make your reservations early. It’s a great way to celebrate Halloween and enjoy all that Riviera Village has to offer.

Halloween should be scary but…

Thank you to Torrance Memorial for these Halloween safety tips for Trick or Treating:

  • Young children should always be accompanied by an adult.
  • Everyone should have a flashlight with fresh batteries. Also give kids a cellphone for emergencies if you will not be accompanying them.
  • If older children are going without adult supervision, plan and review a route beforehand and agree on a time when they should be at home.
  • Be mindful if your children have allergies. Houses with teal pumpkins on their porch signify an allergy-friendly house.
  • Advise children to only go to homes that are well-lit. Never enter a home or car for a treat.
  • Stay on brightly lit streets. Never cut across yards or walk through alleys.
  • Always use established crosswalks and proceed with caution. Don’t assume motorists can see you.
  • Discourage masks that may obstruct your child’s vision, and make sure his or her costume fits properly to prevent trips and falls.
  • Make sure any face paint/makeup used is non-toxic.
  • Drive extra carefully during Trick or Treating hours (usually 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.).
  • Keep an eye out particularly for children in dark clothing.
