The United Way of Central Carolinas and The Salvation Army are teaming up with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Charlotte for a Costume Drive to benefit the kids at their centers (ages 4-15).
What this means for you is that you can clean out your closet and donate your kid’s old costumes that you know they’re never going to wear again anyway because they already grew out of it. It’s kinda like a prom dress … you don’t want to throw it away, but you really have no use for it anymore. So why not donate it so a child can have the luxury of enjoying the holiday as well.
Final drop off is Oct. 24 so the kids can pick out their costumes in preparation for their Fall Festival celebration.
You can drop off costumes to the Salvation Army Center of Hope (534 Spratt St. Charlotte, NC 28206)

… And is it just me, or do most girl’s Halloween costumes seem to be kid-sized anyway? As in very, very little fabric. Halloween was a lot more fun as a kid when there was more treats than tricks in “Trick-or-Treat” … just saying.
Happy Halloween, and thank you for helping others have a happy one as well!
