UPDATE: Halloween Costume Drive at the Adorni Center

While you’re out and about this weekend, please pick up a costume for a child that could really use some help.

We are conducting a costume drive at the Adorni Center through October 16 and we need your help.

What we need:

  • New or lightly used costumes for ages 5 to 12
  • Children’s sizes or “one size fits most”
  • Appropriately themed costumes (such as cartoon characters)

Give the gift of an unexpected treat. Give a Halloween costume to an underprivileged child.

Costumes can be dropped off anytime during business hours at the Adorni Center front counter (1011 Waterfront Drive in Eureka). Donated costumes will be fitted and distributed to the kids on Sunday, October 17 in the recreation room at the Serenity Inn, 2109 Broadway Street in Eureka.
