Vikings Players Sort through Donated Halloween Costumes
A handful of current and former Vikings players will help sort through 100,000 Halloween costumes at a United Way event today.
Everson Griffen, Allen Reisner, Ernest Owusu, and Bob Lurtsema will attend the Arc’s Value Village ninth annual “A Celebration of Sorts.” They’ll tag, sort, and assemble Halloween costumes. They will also thank the more than 500 volunteers who participate through the United Way “Caring Connection.”
Throughout the year, Arc Greater Twin Cities has been setting aside donated clothes that could be used for Halloween costumes. About 100,000 costumes will be sorted and assembled throughout the day. The costumes will then be sold at Arc’s Value Village stores in Brooklyn Center, Richfield, New Hope and St. Paul.
The visit will is today, Sept. 18, from 12:45-1:45 p.m. It is on the State Fairgrounds in the 4-H Building.
Viktor the Viking and the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders will also be there.
