Trunks needed for St. Louis Center Trunk or Treat

(Chelsea Update would like to thank Thomas Arbanas for the information in this story.)

St. Louis Center, located in Sylvan Township, will be hosting a “Trunk or Treat” event for the 50 residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities who call the center home on Thursday, Oct. 28.

Community members are invited to set up a treat station from the “trunk” of their vehicle and pass out sweet treats to the residents.

The event will take place around 6 p.m. and will run until approximately 7:30 p.m.

All trunks will need to be ready to visit by 6 p.m., an earlier arrival may be necessary to set up your area. Costumes and trunk decorations are never mandatory, but are highly encouraged.

Community members are welcome to bring family members and friends to participate in trick or treating alongside our residents.

To sign up for this spooky and fun event, donate candy, or for questions related to the event please contact Thomas Arbanas at (734) 475-8430.

About St. Louis Center

St. Louis Center was founded in 1960 and is a residential community for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Currently, 50 men and women from age 18 – 80 live on our 180-acre campus.

They have a variety of conditions, including Down syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome, metabolic disorders and autism. They attend school until the age of 26 and after graduation, go to work in the community, participate in occupational training programs, or, for those who are more physically or intellectually limited, participate in the Center’s Day Program where they enjoy a wide variety of crafts, cultural programs and activities.

St. Louis Center is dedicated to providing residents a full, active and meaningful life and the opportunity to be integrated into the local community. Residents participate in regular on- and off-campus activities, including adaptive movement, music therapy, pet therapy, social gatherings, art and music activities. They also spend time at home with their families.

In non-pandemic times, they volunteer at local social service agencies and community events, and enjoy regular outings to the zoo, sporting events and parks. An on-campus recreation therapist facilitates ongoing activities like basketball, walking and other sports, to keep residents active and healthy.
