Each month, The Advocates Injury Attorneys and Good Things Utah team up to recognize an individual or organization that goes above and beyond to help people in their community. This month, our honoree is Jenn Woo.
Jenn was at her child’s school Halloween parade when she noticed another child who was not dressed up. She later learned that the child’s family was unable to afford costumes that year, so they participated in the Halloween parade in their school clothes.
Knowing how much her own children enjoyed dressing up on Halloween, Jenn decided to help. She started a Halloween costume drive benefiting the children at The Road Home.
The Road Home provides emergency shelter, housing assistance, and supportive services to Utahns experiencing homelessness. On any given night, they have over 1,500 community members, including children, in their shelters.
Jenn’s mission is simple: gather as many children’s Halloween costumes as possible and donate them to The Road Home, so that children experiencing homelessness can fully participate in the fun of the holiday with their friends and classmates.
There are two ways to contribute to the costume drive: bring a new or gently used costume to the drop-off bins, or donate financially. All money donated will be used to purchase new Halloween costumes for the drive. Donations are being accepted from now until October 25th.
If you would rather contribute financially, simply send your donation via Venmo to @AdvocatesDonations, or scan the QR code below.
The Advocates are honored to recognize Jenn for her commitment to bettering the lives of those around her. We are thrilled to be part of her efforts.
