MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) – Central United Methodist Church in Meridian has several people dressing up in their favorite costumes to celebrate an annual tradition that helps children with special needs.
It’s another year Debs Social Service Club is giving back to the community by giving special needs children the time of their lives. The free event featured several activities and games, including face painting, golf, bean bag and photo booth. Debs members dressed up to celebrate the Halloween theme. Organizers said it’s just a small part of how they’re trying to get involved in the community.
“You know, it’s really exciting. This is one of our favorite events that we host every year. It’s really just a great thing for the community and the special needs community to have something special,” said Debs Social Club President Lani Taylor.
“I am very excited. It’s one of the biggest events we have at our club and it’s really fun to be able to get out here and help our community be around the kids so they can have a good time,” said Club Social Vice President Debs, Sumayya Cole.
“We are also grateful to our sponsor, the Downtown Optimist Club, for their continued support and to Central United Methodist Church for allowing us to host it here,” Taylor said.
Organizers said the event has grown over the years and hopes it will grow even more.
