Docomo Pacific will be distributing 2,000 free glow sticks for Halloween as part of the “Be Seen, Be Safe” program that was originally started by the former MCV Broadband.
Docomo Pacific’s acquisition of MCV Broadband was made official in May 2013.
The “Be Seen, Be Safe” program was first implemented in 2006 by MCV Broadband through its community organization, MCV Cable Cares, and is now being continued by Docomo Pacific.
Sponsors for this year’s program are Hawaiian Rock Products, Mobil Oil Guam, the Office of Highway Safety, and Department of Public Works.
Docomo Pacific general manager James Nelson said the distribution of glow sticks will start today, Oct. 28, at the newly renovated Docomo Pacific retail store on Middle Road in Gualo Rai.
Glow sticks are limited to two per person, while supplies last, and can be obtained by simply saying, “Docomo Pacific cares.”
Glow stick recipients are highly encouraged to practice safe usage. As with any costume accessories, Docomo Pacific recommends that glow sticks be loosely fastened to a child’s wrist, trick or treat bag, or costume and not be hung around a child’s neck.
“The safety of the children and accompanying members during Halloween is of utmost concern with Docomo Pacific,” said Nelson. “Thanks to our sponsors’ support, this safety program will make our children more visible and help minimize avoidable accidents.”
