Calling all spooks and witches

Oberlin Elementary School is trying something new this year for Halloween: a costume drive. They are asking for donations of new and gently used Halloween costumes. Students and parents will then be able to peruse the donations during parent-teacher conferences and hopefully find the perfect costume for Halloween.


Jenny Tally, one of the organizers of the drive, said, “If you have ever bought costumes for your kids, you know that you can either get creative and make something yourself or spend way too much money for a pathetic piece of fabric that they will be so happy for.”


The costumes will be located on the stage at the grade school. They are asking for costume donations for three weeks up until Halloween. The curtain will be closed, and there will be a free will donation. According to Mrs. Tally, they have partnered with the Bargain Box, who has agreed to let them have the costumes they already have on hand.

“We wanted to see if this was truly a need that could get off the ground,” said Mrs. Tally. “We will accept all sizes from tiny to large for all siblings.”


The idea for the drive came from a similar idea from Mrs. Tally’s brother, Joe Hirsch, who is a teacher and Student Council sponsor in Herrington.  His council organized a clothing drive for their high school Homecoming dance. Jillian Springer, Oberlin art teacher, thought it might be a good idea to try a similar idea for Halloween costumes for elementary children.


If you have a donation, you can bring it to the OES office.
