Costume Closet Sign Ups

The Costume Closet Thanks You!
Our heartfelt thanks go out to all the volunteers who spent the National Day of Service at the Costume Closet on January 19, 2013. Thanks to your hard work, the Costume Closet sparkles again. We'd like to extend an invitation to our first-time volunteers to come back and spend more time with us. Volunteering at the Costume Closet is fun, flexible and your efforts earn costume rental credits for you, plus money for your school. Want more information? Please contact Wendy Bloomingdale or Selina Lai. Ready to schedule yourself for a shift? Follow this link for simple, online scheduling.
