Donate Childrens' Halloween Costumes For Those In Need

This year has been very hard for us...but with good thoughts and a little help from loved ones we seem to get by. At one point we didn’t even know if Lorenzo would be getting a costume this year...BUT again things always work out. I would love to relieve that sort of stress for other families and would like to try a recycle Halloween costume program. SO, don't put your costumes away...

If you will not use them again, please clean and bag up your child’s costume with all the accessories and send them my way. I will start collecting and store them (I have the space for that) for next year. In September I will make sure these costumes go to those families that are struggling and need a little help along the way.

If you would like to send me your costumes or drop them by. Call my cell phone (206) 380-5765 for more information. Thank you!
