Northwest Corner Drug Take Back Opportunity


Teal Pumpkin Project


As our little ghouls and goblins are preparing for a fun night of trick or treating, I ask that you please consider those children who might have certain food allergies. By taking the Teal Pumpkin Pledge you’ll be giving parents advance notice that your home offers a selection of non-food treats. For example, glow sticks, pens, stickers, silly putty, and more! Simply paint one of your pumpkins teal for all to see and the signal is given. Have a safe night!
