The Woodstock Teal Pumpkin Project will stop offering $10 pre-orders for teal pumpkin packages on September 10th.
WOODSTOCK - Time is running out to pre-order a teal pumpkin package for Halloween this year.
Each package includes a teal pumpkin, stickers, 10 loot bags to give away on Halloween and a Teal Pumpkin Project information sign.
Volunteer Hillary Desmond says the project helps every child feel included on Halloween.
"It encourages people who participate in Halloween to offer non food items to kids who have allergies, restrictions, or otherwise can't enjoy eating Halloween treats."
If you place a teal pumpkin on your doorstep on October 31st, it informs parents and trick or treaters that your home will be handing out non food items. These items can include pencils, stickers or small toys.
Desmond is one of two volunteers organizing the Woodstock Teal Pumpkin Project. She says the organization process has been pretty hectic.
"Trying to get everything organized for the end of October because we are going to be hand delivering all of the loot bags and any of the pre-order packages we will be delivering on the 24th and the 25th of October so we need a little bit of time to get everything organized."
It costs $10 to pre-order a package before the September 10th deadline. After that there will be two pumpkin sales at 1077 Sprucedale Road in Woodstock. The first one will take place on September 29th and will run from 3pm until 7pm. The second sale will be on October 1st and will run from 8am until 11am. Each package will cost $13 at the sales.
