Hey folks! I’m sure you’ve already heard, as we’ve been blowing up Facespace with our latest event! Nonetheless, we’re inviting you to participate in a very special opportunity to give back to others in need. The Voxy Ladies have teamed up with studios and nonprofits across the country to make sure kids can get their spooky/silly/scary on for trick-or-treating this year. We’re accepting donations of your gently used and/or new Halloween costumes for kids.
For those of you who haven’t dressed up for a while, Halloween is almost as big of a deal as Christmas for some kids & for many under resourced families, Halloween costumes are a luxury that simply isn’t in their budget. I (Lisa) have been volunteering as drama teacher for under resourced kids for several years, working with an organization that reaches out to kids whose parents work long hours and can’t afford after school care. Many of my acting students come from pretty scary neighborhoods & wouldn’t have the opportunity to trick or treat if they weren’t picked up & driven to safer neighborhoods by volunteers for the outreach center where I teach. Last year, several of the girls in my class showed up in tears, unprepared to trick or treat as their families weren’t able to afford to buy costumes. Fortunately we had time to run to Target to pick up everything they needed & we had a super fun night together!
So, this year we decided the Voxy Ladies would create a coast to coast Halloween Costume Clothing Drive for Kids!! We have partnered with 13 of our favorite studios (listed below) who have generously allowed us to place donation bins in their lobbies. The costumes will be picked up on October 19th and distributed to homeless and under resourced kids thru our friends at Dream Center LA, Jersey Cares, Frazee Dream Center & Give Fifty One.
