Donate Halloween Costumes To Foster Children

Staff report

Help a foster child receive the Halloween costume of their choice by participating in Touch a Heart Foundation’s Costume Drive.

After hosting a successful back pack drive with Kids in Distress for 150 kids, CEO of the nonprofit Jennifer Kaufman wanted to do something in conjunction with Halloween.

“Foster kids don’t always get their choice of costume,” she said.

Donors will receive a child to shop for. They will receive their name, size and first and second choice of costume. Donors will be asked to purchase a new costume, trick-or-treat bag and a bag of candy.

“People really feel a strong connection when they have a name and age and they are shopping for someone specifically,” she said.

The costumes and candy can be dropped off at The Oaks at Boca Raton between Sept. 1-26.
