PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Tarin Gonzalez has been accepting donations at the Carver Center for Halloween costumes, which will be distributed to children whose families might otherwise not be able to afford them."Halloween is an important part of American culture. Kids want to be able to participate and not feel left out," said Gonzalez, who manages the food pantry and clothing closet at the Carver Center. "You get to be creative and put your imagination to work."From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday the Carver Center invites parents and children to come and pick out a free costume from its collection on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The Carver Center is taking costume donations all week until then.
Gonzalez said there will be snacks and plenty of volunteers to help families pick out the right costume."We want this to be fun and exciting for the kids," she said.
