Organizers of the 16th annual Del Ray Halloween Parade are reaching out for new and gently used costumes to distribute to children in need.
There’s a particular need for larger-sized costumes for older children between the ages of 12 and 14, organizers said.
Donations can be dropped off in the large tupperware bins located inside the Caboose Cafe and Bakery, 2419 Mount Vernon Ave., and A Show of Hands, 2204 Mount Vernon Ave.
The costumes will be distributed from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Mount Vernon Recreation Center.
