Costume and Candy Drive

Children’s Halloween Costume and Trick or Treat Candy Drive


Costume Collections until October 10

Candy Collections until October 20


All sizes of new and gently used Halloween costumes can be dropped off at any of the following businesses until October 10.  We are very grateful to them and the many schools also hosting drives with their students! 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.

  • 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.)



Candy donations are also being collected until October 20 at the following Rouses Market locations.  All candy donations will go to the Melrose Place neighborhood so that residents will have something to give out to the children.

  • Rouses Market #58, 14630 Village Market Street (Airline between Antioch and Highland)
