You've Been Boo'd 2022 Macaroni Kid Event: Sign Up + Printable Inside

By Stacey Jones September 18, 2022

Macaroni Kid Lincroft-Holmdel-Tinton Falls is excited to announce that we will be bringing back a community favorite by starting a trend to pay it forward and flood our community with kindness this fall with our You've Been Boo'd event!  We will be spreading joy in the neighborhood to 100 local families between October 4th and 16th and starting the “Pay It Forward” trend that will continue in our local neighborhoods throughout the month of October.

Each Boo Bag will be stealthily delivered to the recipient's front porch and will consist of surprise treats and goodies for the whole family. Macaroni Kid Lincroft-Holmdel-Tinton Falls and the local sponsoring businesses are supplying all of the goodies to stuff the bags. "We are excited to spread joy throughout the community in this unique and exciting way" said Macaroni Kid Publisher Stacey Jones. "It will be wonderful to make this autumn even more spectacular and fun for our community. None of this would have been possible without the generosity of our amazing sponsors! We are extremely grateful to our Title Sponsor, Trinity Hall, and to all of our other Community Sponsors: Monmouth MuseumTaste and TechniqueInspired Minds Fine Art SchoolAtlantic Pediatric DentistryEscapology Escape Rooms HolmdeliPlay America, One River School of Art + Design Middletown, Soap's Laundry, Pure Artistry Dance, Music Together Coastal Melodies, A Time to Kiln, Shrewsbury Gymnastics, Cuozzo Orthodontics, Melrose Realty, and Fresh Express."
