The Kids of the Community organization and 2011 Little Miss Fairest of the Fair Emily Wade are collecting either used or new Halloween costumes to be given to youth involved in the Kids of the Community program.
They will be accepting costumes of all sizes suitable for ages 5-18 until Oct. 14, and will have a booth set up at the Autumn Street Fair tomorrow to accept costumes. A Halloween party for the youth is in the planning stages for this month, and items suitable for prizes are also needed. Suggestions include stuffed animals, candy or small toys.
“The children always have a ton of fun at this party, almost as much as they have at our Christmas party,” said program coordinator Heather Luttrell. “They always try to put an outfit together, so this will be nice for them to have one they can enjoy.”
Drop-off locations are also at Salon Suites, Southern Standard, Cash Express or the Kids of the Community office in the Courthouse. For more information, contact Luttrell at 474-5437.
