Share the Boo is back!

Launched in 2019 with the support of the Chief Press Foundation and the Key Biscayne Community Foundation, the initiative successfully collected 400 Halloween costumes that are now being distributed Belafonte TACOLCY Center in Liberty City

For 2020, program founder, Isabel del Valle McGuinness, had to rethink the concept due to Covid-19. The donated costumes will be stored for distribution in 2021.

“I am so thankful to all the people who helped make my idea a reality last year and now I ask for their support once again,” said Isabel, a 9th grader at MAST.

She is looking to donate 400 pre-made bags of Halloween candy. Chase Bank helped kick things off by donating 500 lollipops and 500 pencils.
