HNS Parents Committee News and Events
Happy November! We have many upcoming opportunities to get involved, give back, and enjoy the season!
Donate Your Halloween Costume to Children in Need!

Do you have a costume in good condition that can be given to a child in need for next year? Looking for a way for your child to give back this season?

We are collecting costumes for organization WEEN DREAM, an all volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit that gives free Halloween costumes to children in need across America.

Please see these instructions for packaging up your costume and place it in the box/bin labeled WEEN DREAM in the library entrance (next to Thanksgiving-in-a-Box). We will collect costumes through 11/22 and then we will ship all costumes to the organization.
