Children’s Halloween Costume and Trick or Treat Candy Drive
Starting September 1
Costume Collections until October 10
Candy Collections until October 20
All sizes of new and gently used Halloween costumes can be dropped off at participating businesses from September 1 until October 10. We are very grateful to our Costume and Candy Drive supporters, particularly the many schools also hosting drives with their students! Collected costumes are organized and sorted by the Kids’ Court Youth Leadership and Volunteer Program participants. After the needs of the Big Buddy Program and local neighborhoods have been met, any costumes leftover are donated to Ween Dream, a New Orleans nonprofit that ships free Halloween costumes to children nationwide. This year’s neighborhood beneficiary is Melrose Place off North Foster near Florida Boulevard.
