The Lutcher Theater is hosting a Costume Drive October 1-14 benefiting

Treat-It-Forward, a local non-profit organization that provides free Halloween costumes to economically disadvantaged children around Southeast Texas.

Patrons attending The Choir of Man, October 4 and The Wizard of Oz, October 14 can participate by bringing new or gently used costumes to the show. Community members can drop off costumes at the Lutcher Theater during office hours Monday through Friday

8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

In 2015 Founder, Jenny Wilson simply posted a few pictures of her children’s Halloween costumes on Facebook for any child in need. Three years later, Wilson’s act of kindness has evolved into a charity organization with 14 drop off locations, local sponsors and thousands of local children smiling on Halloween night.

Any child in need of a Halloween costume is invited to the Treat-It-Forward Fun Day, Saturday, October 27, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m at the IBEW 479 Union Hall, 1430 Spindletop Ave, Beaumont, TX 77705.

“I can’t wait to see the smiles on my Treat it Forward kids from across Southeast Texas who will be able to pick out a free Halloween costume at the Family Fun Day because of the generosity and enthusiasm of this community!” Wilson said.
