2017 Children’s Costume and Trick or Treat Candy Drive
September 15 – October 10
All sizes of new and gently used costumes and individually wrapped bags of candy are collected during the 10/31 Consortium Costume Drive. Donations can be dropped off at any of the following businesses between September 15 and October 10. We are very grateful to them and the many schools also hosting drives with their students!
Violet Lotus Studio, 4213 Government Street (Mid City)
Sherwood Dental Care, 11700 Haymarket Avenue (Sherwood between Coursey and I-12)
AIM Print and Ship, 9655 Perkins Road, Suite C (Perkins at Bluebonnet)
Party Time Baton Rouge, 3350 Bluebonnet Blvd (near Airline Hwy.)
Collected 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 and local neighborhoods have been met, any costumes leftover are donated to Ween Dream. This year’s neighborhood beneficiary is Melrose Place off North Foster near Florida Boulevard. All candy donations will go to the neighborhood so that residents will have something to give out.
With your support, 10/31 Consortium has been able to outfit over 1,000 Baton Rouge children with Halloween costumes they otherwise may not be able to have. Thank you!
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 name in all press releases, and company logo (if provided below) on all printed materials advertising the costume drive. School drives are not advertised as they are only for the students of that particular school.
