September 9th - October 21st 2024

For thousands of children across New Jersey, the Halloween traditions of costumes, candy 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. Halloween carnivals, trick-or-treating and the possibility of being your favorite super hero – even for a night – all disappear when you don’t have a costume. Help Jersey Cares bring imaginations and magic to life for children living in New Jersey by collecting new and gently used Halloween costumes.

Register to Collect

As a collection site, you will have the opportunity to provide youth between the ages of 0-14 with the chance to enjoy a fun and festive Halloween! Jersey Cares appreciates all donations; however, we only accept new and/or gently used costumes. We ask that volunteers refrain from donating stained or torn costume items.

**IF DONATING GENTLY USED ITEMS PLEASE BE SURE TO WASH BEFORE DONATING.**

  • New or gently used costumes (ages 0-14)
  • Halloween masks
