Huntington Mayor Accepting Halloween Costume Donations

Halloween is less than a month away and while some children are eager to wear their costumes other children may be without a costume to go Trick or Treating in.

But this year, the mayor’s office has teamed up with Papa John’s Pizza on Ninth Avenue and will be accepting costume donations for children who may have no other means of getting them, so they can enjoy the festivities.

Anyone who donates a new costume will receive certificates for two large pizzas, but used costumes are also accepted.

The costumes will be distributed at local community centers on Oct. 28. Boys’ and girls’ costumes of all sizes will be accepted.

Costumes can be dropped off at Room 8 in City Hall at 800 Fifth Avenue from now until Oct. 27.

This year, Trick or Treat will be 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Oct. 29, throughout Huntington.
