'WEEN DREAM Costume Headquarters
3001 River Rd.

The 'WEEN DREAM costume headquarters is in the beautiful city of New Orleans, Louisiana. This is where the vast majority of all 'WEEN DREAM costume donations are sent, processed, stored, and matched to children in need across America!
New Orleans Costume Donation Instructions
1. Wash or dry clean (depending on the costume's care instructions) each costume before donating it to 'WEEN DREAM. We are unable to use costumes that have not been cleaned.
2. Only donate costumes that are in good condition. As a rule of thumb, if you would purchase the costume in its current condition from a consignment shop for your own child, then it's probably in "good" condition.
3. Put each costume in its own large, sealed Ziploc bag so that it will not get wet or dirty while it is waiting to be processed by our volunteers.
4. Getting the costume to 'WEEN DREAM:
You can drop costumes at the 'WEEN DREAM costume headquarters (inside the American Legion at 3001 River Rd., Jefferson, LA 70121) during its regular business hours: 8-10am on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. To confirm someone is there to accept the donation, please call 504-833-7984.
5. New costumes (never worn and still in their original packaging) may be donated to 'WEEN DREAM in the same manner as described above for gently used costumes.
