Why donate Halloween costumes to Goodwill?

There are so many good reasons to spread the Halloween spirit and donate your pre-loved costumes and accessories to Goodwill. Here are just a few:

Reduce waste

Part of the fun of Halloween is wearing an outfit you wouldn’t normally wear in everyday life. The only problem is that most costumes are only worn once! Over time, that can add up to a lot of extra clothing or accessories to keep in closets or storage bins, especially if you have growing kids. Unfortunately, around 85 percent of Halloween costumes end up in landfills, where they can take years to break down. Instead of throwing your Halloween goodies in the trash bin, donate them to Goodwill instead! By donating your costumes, you’ll declutter your home and keep our planet beautiful.

Pass on the Halloween fun

Not surprisingly, Halloween is a favorite holiday among children. It’s a time to celebrate imagination, curiosity, and of course, the beloved tradition of trick-or-treating! While kids usually want to wear a different costume each year, buying a brand-new costume isn’t always in the budget for many families. Here’s where donated Halloween costumes make all the difference!

If you’re holding onto pre-loved costumes and accessories, donate them to Goodwill and give them a second chance for Halloween celebrations to come. At Ohio Valley Goodwill, we accept donated Halloween costumes all year round, which are then resold in our retail stores at affordable prices. Another family is sure to appreciate your gently-used costumes, so pass them on!

Create jobs in your community!

When you donate to Goodwill, your Halloween costumes will end up making a big impact in your community! Your donated goods are resold at our retail stores, where they generate revenue that helps to support Goodwill’s vocational programs and services for individuals with disabilities. It’s all a part of our cycle of success that fuels our mission to change lives through the power of work!
