Charity of Choice
If you have been to our events before, you know that we always choose a charity to highlight. We think it is especially necessary to show our children the importance of giving back to their community. We have chosen ‘WEEN DREAM, which is an all-volunteer, New Orleans based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that gives free Halloween costumes to children in need, including those with serious medical conditions or special needs, kids living at shelters or in poverty, and kids who have experienced a recent natural disaster.
You can help ‘WEEN DREAM year round by donating or volunteering, and during Halloween season by purchasing a costume for one of our “Pumpkin Patch” kids (who need a new costume for medical or other reasons). year round by donating or volunteering, and during Halloween season by purchasing a costume for one of our “Pumpkin Patch” kids (who need a new costume for medical or other reasons).
Here are a few more tips for donating:
- We Really Need: children’s Halloween costumes, tutus in all sizes and colors, dance recital costumes, superhero capes, tiaras, and 2-gallon or larger Ziploc bags (every costume we give to a child goes out in one of these bags!).
- We Currently Do Not Need: clothes, shoes, adult costumes, gloves, face paint, wigs, tights, masks, beads, jewelry, t-shirts, costumes for other holidays (like St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, or Christmas), trick-or-treat bags/pails, clothing hangers, or Halloween decorations.
WEEN DREAM accepts gently used or new children’s costumes. We ask that gently used costumes be washed and in good condition. Costumes may be donated in their original packaging, a Ziploc bag, or any other box or bag that works. All children’s and youth sizes are welcome, but this year we are especially in need of Girls’ costumes sizes 4 through 12.
