Dancing the Night Away at the Greentree Harvest Party

Potomac Glen 770x293 1

Earlier this week, with the help of more than 50 volunteers, NCCF supplied dozens of children served by our Family Services Division with the opportunity to select Halloween costumes, create crafts, have their faces painted, eat candy, and dance at an October harvest party.

The evening started off with families arriving together. Dinner for 85 was served via a donation from the Lowell School.  Parents (both men and women) shopped at Dr. C’s Boutique and attended a domestic violence awareness seminar.  Meanwhile, the younger children moved into the gym and the real party got started.

Hay bales, gourds, decorations and more than 75 pumpkins from Joe Colletta, owner of Earth Design Services created a fall wonderland for the youngsters.  Music was provided free-of-charge by D.J. Pootie and the little ones got their dance party started.

Hundreds of costumes were provided by donors including; Woodmont Cares (Woodmont Country Club), Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart, Potomac Glen Day School, Wyngate Elementary School, Hilary Fitlis, Torie Comeaux with AKA at Howard, and Trent Heminger-Compass. Spiderman was the most popular option for both boys and girls and every child left ready to trick-or-treat later in the week. All costumes not selected at this party went on to other harvest parties and NCCF programs including JC Nalle Elementary, The Kennedy Short Term Family Housing.
