Sacramento Boy Inspires Large Franchise to Organize Halloween Costume Drive for Needy Children

Sacramento Boy Inspires Large Franchise to Organize Halloween Costume Drive for Needy Children

As the saying goes "it only takes one person to make a difference." and this could not be more true with 13 year old Ryan Manriquez from Sacramento. Ryan, who uses a wheel chair due to spinal muscular atrophy, loves Halloween. In fact it’s his favorite holiday because it’s the only holiday he feels you can pretend to be someone else and no one looks at your disability. Last year Ryan decided to organize a Halloween Costume Drive to provide costumes to children in need throughout the greater Sacramento area as his sixth grade community project. Ryan’s efforts sparked an interest in large franchisee fast food restaurant Papa Murphy’s pizza.

"We saw Ryan’s efforts in making a difference in the community. At Papa Murphy’s we strive to make our community a better place and give to those less fortunate.

Kids Don't Float!

Kids Don't Float!

Our family lives near the river in Auburn, and we spend 3-5 days a week during the summer months dipping, swimming, and floating the hot summer days away.  As a regular to the confluence I see families with small children, toddlers and up, putting on sunscreen but no life jackets! Certainly the sunscreen is important, but why on earth would these parents let their children play in the river (they clearly can’t swim) without a life jacket on? There are jackets provided at the river, admittedly, they are functional not fashionable.
