On October 28thand 31st, Style Saves hosted two Halloween events at the Lotus House in Overtown, which is the country’s largest homeless shelter for women and children. In addition, the organization donated a hundred costumes to migrant families who are part of the Guatemalan-Maya Center as well as to a communal elementary school in Miami Dade County.
Thanks to JAKKS Pacific and our donors we were able to style 220 kids and their mothers from the Lotus house shelter on Sunday, October 28thfor their upcoming Halloween Party. Everyone was able to choose from brand new costumes that included Elmo for mother and daughters, Mr. Incredible, The little mermaid costumes, fairies, Power Rangers and many more.
Additionally, Style Saves hand-delivered donations to West Palm Beach and the elementary school. We even got to part-take in their Halloween event. We loved visiting their facility and playing with the kids!
October 31st was our big Halloween event day in collaboration with Lotus House. Everyone in the building was dressed up and spread a great Halloween spirit. We had arts and crafts stations, where we made spider webs with the kids as well as our very popular slime station!
We had amazing volunteers from our communities come out to help us with face painting, dance and Trick or Treat activities, which was made possible by the Gerrit J Verburg Company, that donated over 1000 units of candies.
We would like to thank our volunteers from Soho Beach House and Cushman Elementary School and everyone else who helped us out to make such amazing things happen within our community! Until our next Halloween Dance!
