Caring Costumes 2017

September 28, 2017

Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Kathy Phillips and former Crime Victim’s Advocate Robin Anderson believe every child should have a great costume for Halloween festivities. To make sure that happened they formed Caring Costumes in 2016, and dressed many Fayette County children for Halloween. It’s that time of year, and Caring Costumes is collecting gently used costumes once again.

Kathy and Robin will make sure the costumes are cleaned and donated to an organization who has identified children in need. If you have a new or gently used Halloween costume to donate please connect with
