Halloween Heroes 2019

Initiatives like Operation Backpack® and Brightening Birthdays™ exist to help normalize the lives of children in our shelters. So, what's Halloween without costumes?

Our "Halloween Heroes" costume drive helps children in our family and domestic violence shelters experience the excitement of Halloween.

How to Get Involved

  • COLLECT. Hold a drive (at your office or virtually) to donate new costumes and candy for the children in our shelters. Email volunteers@voa-gny.org to learn how you can get involved.  
  • DONATE. If you want to help, but don't have time to shop or organize a drive donate here and your contribution will help bring a smile to a child's face during the holidays.

      In light of COVID-19, we are doing things differently this year. Reach out to learn how you can help – email volunteers@voa-gny.org.
