Halloween Costume Drive 2018 – Collecting Gently Used Costumes

Girl Scout Troop 5548 is once again collecting old and gently used Halloween costumes. Take this opportunity to clean out your closets and make a child’s Halloween special! The costumes will be donated to the Monarch School for underprivileged children in San Diego. We encourage you or your child to bring in costumes and drop them off in the bin in your school’s office. The drive will begin on Tuesday, October 9th and end on Friday, November 9th, giving you the opportunity to give old costumes for this Halloween, and then donate your recent costumes for the kids next year. If you have any questions, please contact nadohalloweencostumedrive@gmail.com. Thank you for your support!

New this year!! We would like to specifically make a request for donations of larger-sized costumes. In the past, the older kids at Monarch have not had as many options; some high schoolers are adult size. If you don’t have large costumes to donate, consider making your own from parents’ old clothes and craft supplies (see homemade gumball costume example). Be creative and have fun for a great cause!

 

Thank you!
