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 and gives them to kids in need every Halloween! Donated costumes should be clean and in good condition. If the costume has multiple pieces or accessories, please put everything in a ziplock (or similar) bag before donating. You can also donate costumes in their original packaging. All children’s and youth sizes of boys’ and girls’ costumes are welcome, but our greatest need is for costumes in kids’ sizes 4 to 12.
