Help make Halloween 2013

Halloween offers a unique opportunity for children to get to know their neighbors, enjoy their community and be creative as they choose and design costumes.

But it can also be one of the most dangerous nights of the year for pedestrians, especially children.

Working Partnerships USA wants to make Halloween 2013 the safest ever by making our annual Safe From The Start program the biggest ever.

Safe From The Start has promoted Halloween pedestrian safety throughout Santa Clara County since 2003 with neighborhood volunteers hosting Halloween Safety Centers and through distribution of glow necklaces for trick or treating children and their parents to help them be seen in the darkness.

You can help make Halloween 2013 Safe From The Start in three ways:

1. GIVE

Help us buy 50,000 Halloween Glow Necklaces through your company or workplace's sponsorship (it will be recognized on Safety Center signs) or through your personal donation.

You can make a personal donation online here.

Or you may send a check payable to Working Partnerships USA, memo/for: Safe From The Start and send it to 2102 Almaden Rd. Suite 107, San Jose, CA 95125.

Working Partnerships USA is a public entity, tax ID 77-0387535, with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. Email son@wpusa.org before Oct. 16 and we can make sure you or your organization is recognized on our Halloween Safety Center signs like the one above.

2. VOLUNTEER

Host one of the 160 Halloween Safety Centers in neighborhoods throughout our community where people can pick up their glow necklaces by volunteering online. Your home will be marked with a Halloween Safety Center sign.

3. PARTY

Attend our Halloween Safety Center Kick-Off from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27 at our offices (address above, here's a (map) with your kids for a party to pick up the glow necklaces you will distribute on Halloween night and the Halloween Safety Sign to mark your home. Here's what last year's kickoff party looked like.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!
