The first day of the Kirksville Kiwanis Club Costume Drive began on Thursday at the Adair County Library. This is the first time the group is holding the event meant to aide Heartland parents and guardians who may not be able to purchase costumes for their children this Halloween.

"It's great because we wouldn't be going trick-or-treating," said Zachary Stephens, who brought his family to pick out a costume.

Stephens said he saw the sign while driving through Kirksville. He said he initially questioned whether or not it was too good to be true.

Kiwanis member Randy Hagerty said the drive has received a steady stream of people picking out costumes on its first day.

"It really makes you choke up a little bit when you see how happy kids are," Hagerty said.

Here are a list of days and times families can stop by and collect costumes:

  • Thursday, Oct. 26, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Friday, Oct. 27, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
