Halloween costume giveaway a success
Submitted By Hayward PD
Hayward Police Department conducted its 3rd annual ÒHalloween Costume GiveawayÓ on Tuesday October 29th at the Hayward City Hall Rotunda. Over 270 children were identified this year from eight elementary schools in Hayward to participate. Many of these children would not have the opportunity to participate in Halloween activities both at school and at home without the assistance of this program. Each child was provided with a new Halloween costume matching their gender and age along with bags of candy. In addition, over a dozen different businesses in downtown Hayward provided candy to the children immediately after they received their costumes.
The Hayward Police Department would like to thank the following organizations and individuals who have contributed to make this event a success. Party City Halloween Store in Union City and store manager Shane Singh who provided the majority of the Halloween costumes; The California Narcotic OfficersÕ Association Region One; The Hayward Police OfficersÕ Association; J&J Paper Company; American Licorice Company & AnnabelleÕs Candy Company who both donated all of the candy for the children; & Hayward community member Edward Montgomery.
