You can imagine how difficult it is to be a child in a homeless shelter, particularly this year. You miss out on a lot of things, even something as simple (and fun) as trick-or-treating on Halloween. But this year, thanks to your amazing support, we were able to make sure some very special kids had some Halloween fun!
Our 2nd Annual Halloween Helpers project was a great success. This project helps provide Halloween costumes for homeless children living in shelters or attending local school programs for homeless families.
Over the course of the year we were collecting costumes to deliver and were able to buy more with your generous donations to the project and our Pumpkin Carving Contest. In total, we had over $1,000 in costumes purchased and donated! This enabled us to purchase ahead and deliver all of the costumes with plenty of time to be ready for the fun and spooky night.
“Thank you so much for your donations, without your support we wouldn’t be able to do this,” Project Leader, Melina Sanchez.
The kids were really excited to be able to celebrate and it helped provide a welcome distraction from what’s been a difficult year.
Thank you to everyone who donated and helped share the project, we very much appreciate you and your donation! As always, 100% of your generous donations were used for this project.
If you have questions about the project, or want to get involved to help next year, you can contact our project leader Melina Sanchez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your niceness!
