This was by far the biggest family event we have ever done, and there is no way we could have done it without the volunteers from NorthStar Alarm Services.
Lehi, Utah (PRWEB) November 01, 2013
NorthStar Alarm employees got a jump-start on their Halloween spooks this weekend as volunteers at an educational family event called "Mummies, Misters, and Monsters," organized by the Help Me Grow Utah organization at Thanksgiving Point. NorthStar employees helped set up and run a variety of Halloween-themed booths and activities focused on generating parent and child interaction and play.
"The Mummies, Misters, and Monsters was an amazing event to be a part of for every member of our team," said Adam Bailey, Director of Sales at NorthStar Alarm Services. "We really felt the impact of our work as we played alongside the children and saw the joy and excitement on their faces."
The event aimed at encouraging play between parents and children, and sharing different parenting resources available in the community. Over 750 parents and children participated in the different games, reading activities, fort-building, and Halloween festivities.
"This was by far the biggest family event we have ever done, and there is no way we could have done it without the volunteers from NorthStar Alarm Services. NorthStar employees got right down on the ground with kids and played. The parents and children loved it."
