A local community college is trying to help needy children have a Halloween costume this year. The Lincoln Land Community College Honors Program is hosting its third annual Halloween costume drive. The public is invited to donate all sizes of costumes, both incomplete and partial, along with masks, props and accessories, by October 16th.
The costumes will be collected at the West Sangamon Public Library in New Berlin, the Prairie Skies Library in Pleasant Plains, DiCarlos Pizza and Sacred Heart Church in New Berlin, the Prairie Skies Library in Ashland; as well as locations in Nokomis, Pawnee, Riverton, Sherman, Taylorville, Williamsville, and Springfield.
The costumes will be distributed to families in need at a “BOOtique,” which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Abraham Lincoln Commons on the Lincoln Land Community College campus in Springfield, located at 5250 Shepherd Road.
