Trick-or-treating, costume parades, jack-o-lanterns, costume parties, and haunted houses.  The holiday of Halloween is anticipated by children of all ages.  Halloween costumes can be expensive for low-income families who are struggling to make ends meet. The Costumes for Kids program provides gently used or new Halloween costumes to children throughout San Mateo County so that they too can fully participate in these festivities. 

“I really, really, really wanted to be a fairy for Halloween……and now I am!”  - Teresa, age 6
