L&P recently sponsored and volunteered at Third Thursday—a family-friendly event where the Joplin, Missouri, and surrounding communities get together to enjoy local food, artists, entertainment, and shops. October’s Third Thursday served as a local Halloween event that attracted a great crowd.
During the event, 33 L&P volunteers offered free activities near one of our semi-trucks to raise awareness for and solidify our ongoing partnership with the local United Way. Community members had the opportunity to enjoy a Candy Land Truck or Treat, games, pumpkin decorating, and free bags of popcorn.
Our volunteers handed out more than 8,000 pieces of candy and helped approximately 160 kids decorate mini pumpkins!
We are so grateful to our volunteers for making this Third Thursday fun and successful! Check out some photos from the event below.
