All sizes of new and gently used costumes are collected during the 10/31 Consortium Costume Drive and are given directly to the children in the Big Buddy Program, a local nonprofit that provides positive role models and quality learning experiences for the underserved children & youth of Baton Rouge. Program recipients then show off their costumes by marching in the Baton Rouge Halloween Parade.
Costumes are organized and sorted in collaboration with Ween Dream, a New Orleans nonprofit that ships free Halloween costumes to children nationwide. After the needs of the Big Buddy Program have been met, any costumes leftover are donated to Ween Dream.
Area businesses and schools are encouraged to participate as donation drop off points by registering on the form below. Businesses and schools that participate will receive a decorated box to collect donations, scheduled weekly pick up or pick up as needed, company or school name in all press releases, and company or school logo (if provided below) on all printed materials advertising the costume drive. The deadline to register is August 15, 2017.
