Halloween Outreach Press Release

Temecula, CA (October 23, 2013) – Novell & Novell Counseling Services is proud to give back to their community this Halloween season.  They will provide Halloween treat bags to approximately 300 children who reside in low-income housing here in the Temecula area.

Ben & Janelle Novell, Owners of Novell & Novell Counseling Services, began their outreach program back in September of this year when they provided back to school supplies to a group of 68 children living in low-income housing.

As a Registered Play Therapist & Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist the decision to focus on children for this outreach program came naturally and almost instantly for Janelle Novell.  “I feel truly honored to have learned from every child that has shared a moment of their life with me” Wanting to do more, they decided to expand their reach again, but to include more children.

On October 31, 2013, approximately 300 children will be surprised as they receive Halloween treat bags stuffed with goodies from the office of Novell & Novell Counseling Services. Distribution of the treat bags to the various unidentified locations will begin promptly at 2:30pm.  “It is important for us to keep the location of the groups in our outreach program confidential.  Their privacy is of utmost importance to us.”
