Sharing the Halloween Spirit With Children In Need

Backpacks 4 Kids AZ, Inc.
Lives Impacted: 150
Donation: Party City Costumes
Backpacks 4 Kids AZ, Inc is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing disadvantaged children living in Arizona with backpacks full of supplies. Often times, these families cannot afford school supplies so our organization provides all that these children need to be successful in school. We received a donation of fun costumes from Party City and Good360. We used them to benefit the families at Sojourner Center, an emergency shelter for low income women and children. Special days can be hard for children whose families live on a tight budget in shelters. Thanks to this donation, all of the children at the shelter got to experience the magic and fun of Halloween. The volunteers told us, “Thank you so much for bringing two big bins of Halloween costumes to the kids living at our shelter. You’ve made Halloween so special for our kids!” One of the mothers at the shelter said, “My daughter loved the costume so much that she did not want to take it off after trick-or-treating. This is the first time that my kids ever had a Halloween costume. Being a single mom, costumes are a luxury that I cannot afford. Thanks for everything!”
