The SoCal Honda Dealers continued their Random Acts of Helpfulness in October by spreading some Helpful Hondaween cheer at local pumpkin patches, children’s hospitals and organizations!
We popped up at over 24 pumpkin patches across the Southland and treated families to a scary-good surprise: thousands of FREE PUMPKINS. One parent at the Pumpkin Factory in Westminster was grateful that her family would be able to celebrate Halloween despite budget restraints saying, “Thanks so much, a pumpkin wasn’t in our budget. But you guys made it affordable for us.” Another visitor from Shawn’s Pumpkin Patch in Whittier was so inspired by our helpfulness that he wanted to honor us with a capital H on his pumpkin, “Thank you for the free pumpkin, I might carve a Honda ‘H’!” And the helpfulness didn’t end there! We even handed out complimentary glow-in-the-dark pails to all the tick-or-treaters. If you spotted a Helpful Honda Guy in Blue at your local pumpkin patch, it probably wasn’t a costume – it was us!
And for the kids who weren’t able to celebrate a traditional Halloween, we brought the Hondaween cheer to them! We visited local children’s hospitals and organizations in Orange, San Bernardino, Northridge, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Loma Linda, Pasadena, and Lancaster and brought festive decorations and complimentary costumes. Kids were able to transform into their favorite superhero or princess, or dress up in masks and funky ears! We also brought along fun activities like pumpkin decorating and other Halloween arts & crafts. A mom at the Northridge Dignity Hospital was thankful her son was able to enjoy Halloween saying, “It’s so nice of you to do this for the children. This really helps us, especially because he’s been so upset about missing trick-or-treating this year.”
So what’s next? Happy Honda Days is just around the corner! We’ll be lending a helpful hand to the less fortunate, families and kids in need and hosting special holiday events with various organizations. We’ll also be surprising families with free trees to help make their holiday a little more festive.
