Freshmen connect kids with Halloween costumes

HAPPIER HALLOWEEN: Halloween is set to be even scarier this year in Hudson, where approximately 20 trick-or-treaters recently purchased affordable costumes through a program of United Way Youth Venture, a partnership between the United Way of Tri-County and Ashoka’s Youth Venture.  

Kids Companion leaders Allyson Waddell,  Samantha Johnson,  Diana Vasselin,  and Olivia Banks,  all freshmen at Hudson High School, collected 100 costumes through donation boxes set up at 15 local businesses. On Oct. 6 and 7, the girls hosted a bake sale and sold the costumes for $1 to $5 at the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest in Hudson.
