LEWISBURG, WV (WOAY) For some children in West Virginia, the Halloween traditions of costumes and trick-or-treating are anything but magical. For these children, Halloween costumes often don’t make the list of essentials in the family budget. The excitement of dressing up as your favorite character or creature all disappear when you don’t have a costume. Help the West Virginia State Police bring magic to life for these children living in the Greenbrier Valley by donating new and gently used Halloween costumes and accessories. Take this opportunity to clean out your closets and make a child’s Halloween special! The drive will begin on Tuesday, October 8th and end on Friday, November 8th, giving you the opportunity to give your old costumes for this Halloween, and then donate your recent costumes for the kids next year.

New or gently used costumes (ages 0-14)
Unused Halloween face make-up
Candy pails or treat bags
