LACASA Center’s unique boutique, the LACASA Collection, is kicking off its second Annual Howell-o-ween Costume Drive. The store is now accepting donations of new or nearly new costumes, which will provide free Halloween dress-up clothing for children in need at LACASA Center. Customers who make costume donations will receive a special store discount coupon.
LACASA is an independent, locally-based nonprofit that helps victims of child abuse and interpersonal violence. The agency’s specially trained team of social workers provides a safe space for abused children and teens to come for counseling, age-appropriate support groups, and activity programs that help young people regain a sense of normalcy in their lives.
The LACASA Collection is accepting donations of costumes and costume accessories for children, pre-teens and teens now through Oct. 20. “We need costumes in all sizes and for all genders,” said LACASA Collection Retail Director Danial Jones. “Toward the end of the month, children and teens have a lot of fun going through the final costume collection. They really enjoy creating their own look.”
Participants who donate a costume to the store will receive a coupon for 25 percent off general merchandise and 10 percent off one furniture item in a single visit.
LACASA Collection is an upscale resale charity boutique that offers home décor, kitchenware and furniture; jewelry, handbags and accessories; books, games and toys; and clothing for the entire family. This is a place where the public shops for good finds and LACASA clients shop for things they need at no charge. All store proceeds directly support critical programs for victims of abuse at LACASA Center.
The boutique is located at 120 W. Highland Road, Kroger/Crossroads Town Plaza, Howell. As with all regular donation requirements, items must be clean and free of stains and rips. Costume donations may be made during the store’s autumn hours on Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
