Costume and Candy Drive
Children’s Halloween Costume and Trick or Treat Candy Drive
Starts September 1
Costume Collections until October 10, Candy Collections until October 20
All sizes of new and gently used Halloween costumes and individually wrapped and bagged candy can be dropped off at participating businesses listed below 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 given away to the general public for free at our Costume Giveaway Day. This year’s neighborhood costume and candy beneficiary is Melrose Place off North Foster near Florida Boulevard.
Thank you to Party Time, the Official Sponsor of 10/31 Consortium’s Costume and Candy Drive, and to the rest of our donation drop off sites.
With your support, 10/31 Consortium has been able to outfit over 1,500 Baton Rouge children with Halloween costumes they otherwise may not be able to have. Thank you!
Thank you to Ace Enterprises, Inc. for providing the boxes used for our donation bins! The Kids’ Court enjoyed decorating them!
