On Saturday October 22, 2016 a team of Interfaith Social Services’ volunteers distributed Halloween costumes to over 200 children whose families are clients of Interfaith’s food pantry.
These new and gently used costumes were all donated by the community. Over the past few weeks costumes have been pouring in from schools, businesses and individuals. We feel truly blessed to be a part of a community filled with so many kindhearted and generous people.
The Patriot Ledger did a story about the distribution. Click here to read it.
Below are some photos from Saturday. Dennis Nations of Nations Photography did a fantastic job capturing the joy that these kids felt as they searched for the costume of their dreams.
We are pleased to announce that our community was so generous with their donations of Halloween costumes this year that we have enough to serve all of our clients next year as well! HOWEVER, we desperately need costumes for older children – ages 10-12. Next year that is the only item that we will be asking to be donated.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered, donated or helped spread the word. Watch at your doors this Halloween, one of those smiling princesses or ninjas just might have been a child you served. Thank you for bringing joy to the children served by Interfaith’s food pantry.
