Carver partners with Goodwill on Halloween Costume Drive

goodwill-logoCarver is partnering with Goodwill of Western and Northern Connecticut to launch a Halloween Costume Drive, calling on all Carver friends to donate new or gently used costumes to the Carver Community Center by Friday, October 10, 2014.Halloween

Carver kids will select the costumes they want to wear to their Halloween Party on Friday, October 17th, 6-8PM, at the Carver Community Center.  Carver kids will then personally deliver these costume donations and hopefully a significant surplus of donated costumes received through this campaign to the Goodwill store in Norwalk during the week October 20th for the benefit of the entire community in time for Halloween.

The best donations for kids K-5 are full body costumes. The older kids prefer masks.

The spirit of giving is a daily part of the Carver culture. Carver young people are enthusiastic to both dress-up for Halloween and to see how many costumes they can inspire the community to give for other kids throughout Norwalk.

The Carver Halloween Party on Friday, October 17th also marks the beginning of Carver’s Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive! All families and youth attending the party are encouraged to bring nonperishable food donations.Halloween 2

A media photo opportunity involving this campaign’s youth and donors will be held at the Goodwill store in Norwalk at a time to be announced (the week of October 20th), to be managed by one of Connecticut’s largest marketing firms,¬†Cashman & Katz.

Thank you for supporting Carver kids!
