Interfaith volunteers Robin, Judy, Therese & Anita (not pictured) have already been hard at work sorting through costume donations.

You’ve seen the bags of candy and orange and black decorations piling up at local stores, and even though it still feels early, we are getting into full Halloween mode here at Interfaith Social Services.

Our annual Halloween Drive aims to set up our youngest clients to enjoy the late October tricks and treats. Many of our client families do not have the means to walk into a store and purchase costumes for their children. Through the Halloween Drive, hundreds of children will be given costumes so that they may have the opportunity to enjoy Halloween festivities.

We are in need of new and gently used Halloween costumes, especially larger-sized children’s costumes (for 10-12 year olds). We will be purchasing some larger-sized costumes as well, so monetary donations are also appreciated.

Here’s how to help: Please stop by Interfaith, located at 105 Adams St., Quincy, during business hours to drop off your donation. Donations must be received by Monday, Oct. 16.  Hours are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 9am – 3:30pm and Tuesday 9am – 7pm.

For more information, or to make a monetary donation, visit www.InterfaithSocialServices.org.
