The St. Louis High School National Honor Society is collecting costume donations from the citizens of St. Louis. According to one of the leaders of the NHS costume drive committee, Aubrey Sherwood, “We came up with this idea because we knew that some kids would be without a Halloween costume this year.” The goal of the drive is to allow all kids to have fun without money being a worry.

“I wanted to start the costume drive because there’s elementary parades during Halloween, and some kids don’t have the money to get a costume,” Kassidy Acker, the other committee chair member, commented. “I thought it would be good to have the opportunity for them to get free costumes.”

Decorated donation boxes are placed at Carrie Knause Elementary, Nikkari Elementary, St. Louis High School, and City Hall. Students and community members can drop off gently-used costumes at any location they choose. They are being accepted until the pick-up date. Children can pick out a costume Wednesday, Oct. 17, from 3 to 4 p.m. at the high school.
