  • Daycare centers and preschools often have dress up areas. See if your local daycare centers and preschools would like to add your Halloween costumes to their dress up closet.
  • Thrift stores and consignment stores will generally accept costumes. Consignment stores may be pickier than thrift stores so if you want fast, consider donating the whole lot.
  • Local theaters are always looking for costumes for plays. If you don’t have a local theater, check with your local college or public schools’ theater department.
  • Freecycle.org allows people to offer items for free in their area. Simply post that you have a box of Halloween costumes for anyone interested. It only takes me a day or two to get rid of things this way.
  • Battered women’s shelters will often accept Halloween costumes for the children that are staying there.
  • Make a scarecrow. Depending on the costume, stuff it with hay and make a scarecrow for your front porch.
  • Your local food shelf often knows the needy families in the area. Contact them and see if they have a way to distribute your costumes to those in need.
