Austin Police Department (APD) Office of Community Liaison (OCL) and the Austin Independent School District Police Department (AISD PD) will host a drive-thru trunk or treat event on Saturday, October 30, 2021 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. at Nelson Field at 7105 Berkman Drive in North Austin.
The community outreach effort is youth – especially LGBTQIA+ youth - who reside in North Austin near Northeast Early College High School, which is a Title 1 school that predominantly serves low-income families. The objective is to continue fostering positive community relations in an underserved area and with the LGBTQIA+ community that has historically had strained relations with police.
With COVID-19 restrictions still in place and changing, the priority is the safety of the community and participants. Therefore, this event is outdoors in a large parking area, which will allow participants to maximize health and social distancing protocols.
Organizations and families can also participate by:
- Bringing a decorated vehicle and giving away candy, unopened snacks, and/or souvenirs
- Setting up a canopy or table that represents your organization
- Donating candy or unopened snacks
- Giving a monetary donation (all donations will go directly towards this event)
Event subject to cancellation due to changes in COVID-19 public gathering guidelines.
