Thank You Coronado – Halloween Costume Drive Update

This Halloween we delivered 250 costumes to the Monarch School for their annual costume store where each student gets a personalized “costume shopping” experience. We had the privilege of sharing our story on Fox5 News, who met us when our troop delivered the costumes to the school.

Below is the link to the news story which aired last Friday:

We are still collecting costumes through next FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10th for next year’s Halloween. If you are done with yours, please drop off at any of our bins located in the school offices – CHS, CMS, Village Elementary, Silver Strand and Christ Church Day School. The representatives at Monarch informed us that there was a shortage of bigger costumes for the older kids. Some high school kids wear adult sizes so feel free to donate adult costumes as well!

Our goal is to raise awareness about childhood homelessness in San Diego. Thank you, Coronado, for helping us to achieve our goal and for your generous costume donations!
