Connect with ghoulish garments at community closet
A program organized by a Clackamas River Elementary School parents will allow community members to perfect their spooky Halloween style.
Shayla Wells is coordinating a community costume closet at the school and is seeking donations of old or new items.
"Costumes are an extra thing, but they're fun and important for kids to feel involved," she said. "It's a way to give back to the community and reuse costumes people don't need, so they can go to a good home."
The costume closet will be open from 2-4 p.m. Wednesdays near the food pantry at Clackamas River Elementary School, 301 N.E. Second Ave. The opening day was Wednesday, Oct. 2, and the program will run through Wednesday, Oct. 23.
Wells is aiming to offer Halloween attire for all ages, whether they hope to wear a scary or cute costume or something in between.
"We have about 20 costumes so far," she said, noting that several were donated by the Rag Refinery.
