That’s why a Rapid City mom is throwing her first peanut–free Halloween on Friday. Allison Deyo’s daughter suffers from a life –threatening peanut allergy which prevents her from enjoying her entire loot of Halloween candy.
“We went trick–or–treating a couple years ago and she was only able to eat 2 pieces of candy by the time we got home and it was sort of heart breaking,” said Deyo. “So we wanted to give kids like her a chance to trick–or–treat like a typical kid would.”
Deyo says she has enough candy to fill two bath tubs. And the sweet part is all the candy was donated.
Residents at the Golden Living Center helped bag treats and plan to hand them out to trick – or– treaters on Friday. The event runs from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at 1620 N. 7th Street in Rapid City. Everyone is welcome, even those without peanut allergies.
