When it comes to finding your ideal Halloween costume, Goodwill® stores offer unlimited possibilities for the budget conscious. With the economy still in recovery mode, why pay full price for a costume when you can find the materials to create your own for a fraction of the price?

While Halloween stores offer costumes, many are mass-produced with marked up prices. Goodwill offers affordable options for anyone to create one-of-a-kind outfits without breaking the bank. With items in every shape, size, and color — and from various eras — you can rest assured you will not run into anyone wearing the exact same costume.

With a little creativity and out-of-the-box thinking, anyone can find an ideal costume for less at Goodwill. The 6 locations in Lincoln and York are full of everything you need this Halloween.

“Goodwill is a one-stop shop for costumes for the entire family. Not only is the whole process of shopping and creating costumes fun, it helps our community members,” said Amanda Herndon, Communications Specialist of Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc. “Revenues from your Halloween costume purchase fund Goodwill’s job training and career services for people in the Lincoln Community.”

Shopping at Goodwill helps our community. In 2011 alone, Goodwill store revenues helped deliver employment and training programs to 2,514 people. 1,662 of those people were served at Goodwill’s Job Connection Computer Lab located at Workforce Development’s One Stop Career Center. Goodwill helps people who face barriers to employment gain the skills and confidence necessary to gain meaningful employment.

People are looking for value when they shop for Halloween, and they are concerned about high unemployment rates in their communities. Goodwill helps solve both of these concerns by providing affordable Halloween costume options, which in turn help Goodwill fulfill its mission of helping people in need reach their full potential through education and the power of work.
