HOUSTON, TX – Memorial High School sophomore BJ Rottinghaus started a nonprofit organization Y’alloween because he wanted to make sure that children in need had a costume to go to the treat.

“It’s important for me to connect with them because I want to spread this Halloween joy to everyone,” Rottinghaus said. “I want them all to be able to go there and get a boatload of candy and have fun.”

Y’alloween is partnering with the Houston Women’s Center and AVDA (Domestic Violence Assistance) to purchase costumes for the kids.

“We were excited to partner with them, we think it’s a great idea, and we were thrilled to be able to give our customers’ children the peace of mind they need to get through Halloween,” said AVDA’s Hannah Richard-Molina. . “When I met him and saw that he was a high school student, I was incredibly impressed.”

This year, Rottinghaus hopes to donate about 150 costumes.
