Halloween Costume Drop
RUMFORD- Have you ever thought of what you could do with that Halloween costume that your child wore once and moved on to bigger and better characters the next year? Maybe you put your time and effort into creating the best costume and don’t want it to collect dust. Now is your chance to see that those costumes get their wear.
Beginning today through Friday, October 5, you can drop your old costumes off at the Greater Rumford Community Center.
The Dempsey Challenge Positive Tracks team for the Holy Savior School & Youth Ministry is hosting the 1st Annual Halloween Drop/Swap.
Organizer, Roxanne Gorham, noted, “Halloween comes just once a year and we know that many of you have been holding onto costumes year after year for siblings and no longer have a need for them. The costume drop is a fun way to recycle. So we are inviting you to clean out your basement or costume box and give another person the opportunity to get a costume at a reduced price and make a donation for a community service initiative. How can this not be a fun and feel good event.”
Here is how it works:
Drop off your costumes by October 5 at the Greater Rumford Community Center entrance. In exchange for clean, gently worn costumes, you will be able to come back on October 6, 8, 9, 10, and 11 to purchase any costume for $5.
Families are invited to take a greener approach to Halloween. Something as simple as a costume swap does make a difference. Everyone is invited, so bring your friends. Tax deduction forms will be provided.
Your kids will be ready for the GRCC annual Halloween parade on Sunday, October 28 at 5:30 p.m.
All proceeds will go to the the Holy Savior Positive Tracks team which is fundraising for The Dempsey Challenge, that will be held the weekend of October 13-14. All monies raised by this youth group will be matched by a grant fund, dollar-for-dollar. Those interested in joining who are 23 or younger, join the team and participate in the run, walk or fundraise as a virtual participant. For further information contact Roxanne Gorham @ 562-8246.
