I’m sure you remember your favorite childhood Halloween costume. It was your big chance each year to be anyone (or anything) you wanted to be! This year, we’re coming together to make this possible for every child.
Please join the Halloween Costume Drive to give kids in Montclair, New Jersey, new costumes! Each child will have the opportunity to pick their OWN costume, one of the greatest thrills of Halloween. And, as a special treat, each child will also receive a bag of Halloween-themed books to celebrate the love of reading.
In Partnership with Local Leaders
Leaders from more than a few non-profits and organizations are coming together to help children - these groups will work together to identify families in need of support, and pass out costumes and books. One hundred percent of the money raised will be put toward new costumes for kids and distributed with help from:
· Big Brothers Big Sisters
· Reaching Out Montclair
· Montclair Community Pre-K
· Montclair Community Child Development Center
· Cub Scout Pack 12
100% of the money raised will be spent to purchase costumes the children choose for themselves.
Fundraising Goal: $3750—that’s $25 per child to get brand new Halloween costumes to 150 children.
When we hit our goal of $3,750, we’ll be able to provide costumes for 150 children from Pre-K to 5th grade.
Where does your donation go? 100% of your donation goes to buying costumes!
Twenty-five dollars pays for a brand new Halloween costume for a child. But any amount –even $5—will help!
100% of your donation goes to purchasing costumes for children who otherwise might not have the chance to dress up on Halloween.
Scholastic Book Clubs will also donate a goodie bag filled with five brand new books to each child who gets a new costume.
Scholastic Book Clubs will donate top quality age appropriate books to each child to celebrate the magic of reading on Halloween (and every day).
Each child will receive the costume of their choice in their correct size, and a goodie bag filled with Halloween-themed books to read.
We hope you'll help us by sharing this campaign with your friends and family, and posting it on Facebook and everywhere.
Donation Deadline: October 3
Please donate by Wednesday, October 3rd, so we'll have plenty of time to purchase the costume each child has chosen—in the correct size-- and pass them out in time for Halloween celebrating!
