Halloween came early to the children at White Rock Village.

Since 2009, 10-year-old Christian Pothast has handed out Halloween costumes so that children can partake in the spooky fun.

“Halloween is my favorite holiday,” said Pothast, “and I want to make sure that lots of kids get to enjoy this holiday, too.”

Through his non-profit, Project Spooky, Pothast has handed out more than 500 costumes since 2009. He seeks donations of new costumes from friends and has also raised money through lemonade stands. He then purchases costumes off-season at lower prices.

“Each Nov. 1 my mom and I race through Target and Walmart to collect as many 50 percent off costumes that we can, then we store them in my closet until the next year,” Pothast explained. “There are lots of kids out there that get super excited about the costumes and it’s really fun to hand them out.”
