Halloween Costume Drive

Halloween Costume Drive


The Tarrytown PTA’s annual costume drive for local kids in need begins Tuesday, October 11, 2016; we need your help gathering/donating costumes for the elementary and middle school kids! Sleepy Hollow is the Halloween capital of NY, but many of our local children can’t afford a costume; through your donations of new and gently used costumes, these kids get to celebrate in style. With your help last year we costumed about 150 elementary kids who wouldn’t otherwise get to dress up, and we can’t make it happen without a lot of help from 10591.

***WE NEED costumes for kids ages 5-13***; several of the teens fit into adult-sized outfits, and things like capes or other “pieces” (clean hats, wands etc) fit all shapes and sizes. We’re looking for costumes for both boys and girls, but this year we have an acute need for costumes for girls age 7-10, and both boys & girls teen/small adult sizes for the middle school.

We’d love your gently used costumes and/or if you’re out shopping and find something awesome to purchase & donate, it’ll be given a great home by a really appreciative kid.

WHERE: John Paulding Elementary School at 154 North Broadway – there’s a box in the lobby just waiting to be filled up!

WHEN: Oct 11-25

Thanks in advance for your help in making this another great holiday for all our town’s kids!
