Help Under Privileged Children Have Fun this Halloween!
Grade Potential Tutoring is currently organizing their annual Halloween Costume Recycling Drive! Grade Potential is gathering used (and new) costumes from the community that will then be distributed to local children in Foster Care, who otherwise would not enjoy wearing a costume this Halloween.
“Many families in the community have old costumes that their children have either outgrown or will not wear again because they want to be something different this year for Halloween,” says David Serwitz, CEO of Grade Potential. “We know how expensive Halloween costumes are and that many families cannot afford to purchase them. There are already many great charities and drives that collect and distribute necessities such as canned food and clothes, but I like the idea making it possible for some of the under privileged kids in the area to have the same fun on Halloween that I had as a kid.”

Grade Potential Tutoring Halloween Costume Drive
Grade Potential is looking for costumes for children of all ages and sizes. The costumes should be in decent shape with no large tears or issues. All types of costumes are welcome, from Super Heroes to Princesses and everything in between.
Collections will run from now through November 17th. Costumes collected after Halloween will be stored and then distributed in 2018. Thank you!
We encourage each organization to have their own team, but if that’s not possible, we can provide a team to decorate a tree for a business or organization. This is purely optional. The trees will be on display at the Marriott Hotel and on December 7th, we will host the silent auction and cocktail reception. Admission is free.
