There’s no question that Halloween is a holiday for the kids. But what about the kids that can’t enjoy it normally because they have severe allergies? That’s when “The Teal Pumpkin Project” steps in to help.

“The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all,” said Plainview resident Heather Alberti, whose five year old son, Nathan, has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts.

The Columbus Day Parade played host a to a very special group this year. The Family Residences and Essential Enterprises’ (FREE) Players Drum Corps made history as they became the first special needs drum corps to march in the New York City Columbus Day Parade.

The group marched up Fifth Avenue from 44th to 72nd Street with a red carpet performance on Fifth Avenue between 67th and 69th Streets.
