10/29/2009 | By: Natalie Savidge  |

Safe Trick-or-Treat, a traditional community service event put on by the University of Nevada, Reno’s Residential Life, Housing and Food Service Department has grown annually and celebrates its 14th year this evening. Parents at the University and in the community are invited to bring their children for safe, fun trick-or-treating at Canada Hall and to the Halloween carnival in the Downunder Café put on by Argenta Hall. This event is particularly suited for grade-school or younger children, as it is promised to be fun, not scary.

"Canada Hall students are excited to welcome preschool kids, grade-school students and other young children and their parents into our home as a safe place to Trick-or-Treat,” said Brandon Knox, graduate resident director of the University’s Canada Hall. “For 14 years, students have recognized that this is a need of the community, and we are more than happy to help meet that need. I think it's wonderful that the University of Nevada has such long standing traditions of bringing students and the larger community together through service."
