Service Project Opportunity - Halloween Costume Drive

For families in need, Halloween costumes are a luxury that many can't afford.

 

Connecting Hands OC is a nonprofit that currently serves over 2300 families in extreme need.

 

Among our many projects, every October we provide Halloween costumes for hundreds of children. We’re looking for local students that are willing to coordinate costume drives in their neighborhoods and at schools. We also welcome the any participation of any youth groups, scout groups, or other service groups. Ideally, you could drop off collected costumes at our office in Placentia by October 7th, or I would pick up costumes from you by October 6th. We do need time to sort and get them ready for distribution. Specifically, costumes child size 6 through adult are needed. (Larger tweens can wear adult costumes.)

 

Upon receipt of costumes, we will sign off on a reasonable number of service hours for students that need them.  

 

If you are interested, please contact Jenifer Weigand @ JMW229@CORNELL.EDU OR 714-944-4716.
