Halloween celebrations started early this past weekend on Sunday October, 30. SUNY Oswego held it’s annual Safe Trick-or-Treat day for Oswego families where children from the community dress up and have fun while being in a safe environment.
Vega, the junior senior honor and service society at SUNY Oswego organized this popular event. “Today the purpose is everyone whose coming needs to bring one food donation and then all of the food donations we get we will give them to the Oswego food bank,” said Vice President of Vega Ashley Cianciabella.
The event started at 11 p.m. and was filled with almost four hours of candy, smiles, and games. The Marano Campus Center had tons of games set up in the lower level by the food shops, while trick or treating activities were located in the east and central campus dorms.
This tradition is one of the many events that promotes safety and involvement for students and residents in the community. Vega president Jennifer Moss says that this year the program raised hundreds of food donations and that it was a success.
