Thomas & Sons Moving Co. celebrates annual Halloween costume giveaway
Local area businesses are collaborating together again this year to outfit kids in need with Halloween costumes.
RAPID CITY, S.D. — Thomas & Sons Moving Company is celebrating the 7th Annual Scare & Share along with Dakota Party.
Participants simply email Thomas & Sons Moving Company and they will get instructions on how to choose costumes from Dakota Party’s website.
Thomas & Sons will purchase the costumes and notify participants when the event will take place to distribute the costumes this Sunday, October 25.
Last year, around 130 children were outfitted with costumes . The deadline to register is this Friday, October 23.
Shannon Thomas, Owner of Thomas & Sons Moving Company, says he enjoys the way Halloween costumes transforms kids into whoever they want to be, saying, “They can come in and they can put a costume on and they are invincible. They love what they are and now all of a sudden, they are a superhero, and so it gives them an escape from everyday life and I think that’s great for kids. It teaches them that they can be whoever they want when they grow up.”
They are also accepting donated costumes in good condition. Those can be dropped off at 3325 Sturgis Road. Participating kids in costumes also get a free ice cream cone at Armadillo’s Ice Cream Shoppe.
Shannon Thomas says he looks forward to this event each year.
Thomas says, “This is my community, I was raised here, I grew up here, I love this place, I love the people here and I believe it’s my job as a business owner to give back to my community and make it a better place to live, and so a little bit at a time – we will get it better.”
