Ween Dream is a national nonprofit organization that provides free Halloween costumes to children in need. Our volunteers believe every child should be able to dress up and participate in Halloween, regardless of his or her family’s ability to buy a costume.
We collect donated costumes (both new and gently used) throughout the year. When we receive a costume, we put certain information about it into our system (size, gender, description, etc.). In August, we start reviewing ‘WEENSTER applications. Parents or guardians fill out a form that tells us the child’s age, size, and desired costume. We try to match ‘WEENSTERs with costumes we already have. If we don’t have a costume for a child, we add him or her to our ‘WEENSTER Pumpkin Patch so that someone will (hopefully) purchase the particular costume needed for that child. Whether through general costume donations or our ‘WEENSTER Pumpkin Patch, we try to get costumes to as many applicants as we can before Halloween.www.weendream.org
