New Rochelle, NY (November 1, 2012) – The electrical power may be down in much of New Rochelle, but the spirits of the Iona College campus community are up. Sponsored by Iona’s Student Government Association (SGA) students, faculty and staff will volunteer to provide Halloween candy for neighborhood children on Friday November 2, between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm on campus outside of Spellman Hall. Outdoor campus trick or treating is open to children under age 11 who are accompanied by an adult.
“New Rochelle is a great community that comes together for its neighbors. We are pleased to open our doors to children who were unable to go trick or treating this year due to the power outages and subsequent aftermath of Hurricane Sandy,” said Iona College President Joseph E. Nyre.
Children are encouraged to wear their costumes, dress appropriately for the weather and come trick or treating with an adult guardian. A number of Iona students, faculty and staff will be dressed in their Halloween best to greet visitors on campus.
Founded in 1940, Iona College is a four-year private, coeducational institution of learning in the tradition of the Edmund Rice Christian Brothers and American Catholic higher education.
