TUCSON, Ariz. — Truly Nolen visited 22 hospitals and children-related venues in six states as part of the company's 6th annual Truly Spooktacular program.
"We were extremely happy to be able to add New Mexico to the mix this year along with six additional venues over what we did in 2018," said Michelle Nolen Senner, director of operational administrative support and special projects. "The buy-in by our service offices across the country for this yearly program has been awesome to see."
At each hospital and venue, the company donated 40 plastic pumpkins and pumpkin decorating kits to create a fun and festive no-carve pumpkin activity at which the company's team members help children decorate the pumpkins to look like cats, princesses, scarecrows, or funny faces. Additionally, each child received a treat bag filled with goodies including Truly Spooktacular Halloween-themed coloring sheets, crayons, and stress ball mouse cars.
The company launched the program in 2014 at Tucson Medical Center for Children to help brighten the Halloween season for children who may otherwise not get the opportunity to trick-or-treat and plans to continue bringing it to new hospitals each year.
