Halloween Costume Drive for Hamilton Family House

A message from Caroline Kreutzen, 8th grade student

As we near Halloween, please think of the many kids who can’t afford a costume and consider donating new or gently used costumes to the Hamilton Family House. Specifically they are looking for any kind of accessories and older kid costumes, however all donations are welcome. The Hamilton House’s mission is to end family homelessness and they provide services such as temporary housing and follow up. If you would like to donate, there will be a box in the main lobby of Kittredge near Trudy’s desk though October 19.
