Levis Commons to host ‘Costume Clean Out’ to help kids in need

The witch from last year is old news and that princess in the closet is no longer her style. So what do you do with these costumes of Halloweens past?

Donate them!

Levis Commons will be hosting the second annual “Costume Clean Out” for you to donate those gently-used costumes to kids in the community.

On Sunday, September 30, costumes can be donated on the patio area near Blue Pacific Grill at Levis Commons between the hours of noon and 4 p.m.

Blue Pacific will also offer 10% off your meal when you make a costume donation.

All Levis visitors can explore the boulevard to find six of the trendiest professionally costumed characters. From Elastigirl to Spiderman, the classic favorites to the latest craze, they will be there in various places to meet, greet and take photos.

All costumes donated will be given to Family House of Toledo, a family homeless shelter with transition programs, childcare and family support services.

“This is a simple way to clean out those old costumes from your home, and share them with kids who may otherwise not get to experience the fun of Halloween, all while being inspired by the professional characters that will be joining us that day,” said Allison Schroeder, Levis Commons Marketing Director.

The costume fun doesn’t stop with the kids.

Four-legged fur babies are invited to come out for a Dog Costume Parade and Contest.

All costumed dogs should meet on the patio area near Blue Pacific Grill at 3 p.m.

Professional photos of your dog will be offered for just $10 each prior to the parade kick off at 4 p.m.

The parade will be led by Woofgang Dog Daycare and include ramps and obstacles for the adventurous pooch.

The costume contest will be sponsored by Three Dog Bakery and include some awesome puppy prizes.
