On November 4th, Senka Park came alive with the vibrant spirit of Halloween, thanks to the Southwest Organizing Project's (SWOP) Halloween event, led by their dedicated anti-violence team, Communities Partnering 4 Peace (CP4P) and SGA Youth & Family Services. Families and community members gathered in high spirits, as the park transformed into a festive hub of celebration and unity. The event was a testament to the power of collective efforts in combating violence and fostering a sense of togetherness.
Many local vendors added to the festive atmosphere, offering a delightful array of treats, crafts, and unique products. Children lined up for face painting, games, and sweet treats, while adults explored the various stalls of food and resources. The Halloween event was not just about entertainment; it also served as an opportunity for local organizations to come together and provide valuable resources to the community. From employment assistance, housing support, and information on educational opportunities, various organizations joined forces to offer a wide range of services to empower and uplift the community. Through this collaborative effort, the event became a platform for residents to access essential resources and connect with organizations dedicated to their well-being, strengthening the bond between the community and these support networks.
