BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The volunteer-based organization and krewe, 10/31 Consortium, needs your help to make sure kids living in the Baton Rouge area have an enjoyable Halloween.
The krewe’s 2023 Costume and Candy Drive is in full swing. It started on Sept. 1 and will last until Oct. 20.
You can donate all sizes of new and gently used Halloween costumes and individually wrapped, store-bought candy at participating businesses.
