Costumes, Community, and Candy: Bringing Halloween Back to the Simplest of Childhood Pleasures

Goodwill San Antonio is your Halloween headquarters!

This Halloween post is written and sponsored by Goodwill San Antonio. Thank you for supporting the organizations and brands that support San Antonio Mom Blogs!

Halloween has changed from a one-day event to a full-on season. “October… It’s already October! I haven’t even thought about the perfect Halloween costume yet!”

“How can I get my kid to re-wear last year’s costume? Does it still fit?”

“Pinterest… let me pull out my glue gun… sequins… surely I can whip something up with this old scarf, shirt and cape…hmmm… it doesn’t look anything like what this photo says it should look like!”

Moms, if this sounds like you, you’re not alone! Make this year simpler, easier and less stressed. Let’s bring the Halloween dressing up and costume planning joys back. Goodwill is here to help. Be inspired by our costume ideas that we have already created for you in our official “Lookbook” (let the kids look through it!), shop locally and for a cause, while still sporting that awesome DIY costume that Pinterest says it possible.

Where To Go?

With 23 convenient Goodwill store locations throughout San Antonio, Cibolo, Kerrville, Laredo, New Braunfels and Seguin, save time and money by shopping for all your ghosts and goblins in one place. Daily discounts on top of already affordable prices make it easy to score great deals on costumes and spooky décor to outfit your home or Halloween party.

Once Halloween is dead and gone, give new life to your costume by donating it back to Goodwill where you continue to change lives through the power of work. Bring your kids with you as you donate that costume back and maybe it will open the doors for a little conversation about giving back.

How You Are Helping

In 2016, donations from the community helped Goodwill fund programs that trained 450 individuals in high-demand careers; directly employed 1,300 individuals, many whom faced considerable obstacles in gaining employment; and placed 2,400 individuals into meaningful work.  October is also National Disabilities Employment Awareness Month, so it’s the perfect time to shop Goodwill and do good.
