Would you like to avoid storing your child’s Halloween costume for the next year or more?
Here is a solution that helps you stay organized and supports a great cause – Children’s Dance Foundation. Right now, before you lose all of the pieces, wash and gather all of the accessories to your child’s Halloween costume and put it in your car (or mini-van). The next time you find yourself in Homewood simply drop the costume by the CDF office. They will accept donations throughout the year. If you are like me, it is best to do it now – who knows where this costume will be in August.
Children’s Dance Foundation, in addition to its studio classes, provides outreach programs to thousands of children and maintains the Community Arts Center in Downtown Homewood. Each fall, CDF holds its annual Bargain Costume Closet where they sell Halloween costumes but also costumes from shows. In fact, Director Shellie Chambers noted that they receive donated costumes from around the country. Despite this, she noted their need for more Halloween costumes and will gladly accept them at any time.
For your donation, you will receive a receipt for the donation (allowing for a tax deduction) and a preview pass to visit the Bargain Costume Closet before it is open to the public in the fall. Moreover, you are avoiding the need to find proper storage in your home and supporting the arts in Birmingham.
