New Circles Community Services seeks new and gently-used costumes to help families celebrate Halloween for the first time in Canada.
New Circles is a non-profit social agency that helps residents of Toronto, especially those in the Flemingdon Park, Thorncliffe Park, and Victoria Village communities. St. John’s parishioners have been proud to contribute time and donations to this agency.
One of their services is a clothing bank, and they are now seeking costumes so that children new to Canada have a chance to dress up for Halloween. They are now accepting donations of costumes, masks, hats and tiaras, capes, and anything else that can help the children express their innter ghoul, superhero, or princess.
Please bring donations to the New Circles office at 10 Gateway Blvd, suite 100 (east of the Shell station on Don Mills road, three lights south of Eglinton Ave), no later than October 14 at 5 p.m.
