It's really great being a year round costume shop (since 1988!) so we can get involved in projects that help our community. This time of year, it's the 4th annual Costume Drive.
Our favourite Vancouver Sun reporter, Daphne Bramham, helped us out last year by sharing our story.
Last year we delivered a lot of donated costumes to grade 2 kids at Queen Alexandra Elementary School in Vancouver's inner city.
It was a blast seeing the children pick a costume, knowing they would be trick or treating in style.
Many, many thanks to all our wonderful customers who have been dropping off costumes their children have outgrown.
It's not too late. We'll be accepting donations at all our locations until mid October. We will also deliver donations of candy and cash for the school lunch programme. This year we're hoping to have enough for several hundred kids at 3 schools where so many kids would not have a costume otherwise.
Thanks for supporting year round costume shops, year round jobs, and local businesses in a pop-up world.
Here's the podcast Daphne shared in 2013.
