Donate Halloween costumes for CHOP patients

Lobby of Bustleton Post Office, 9925 Bustleton Ave.

Anthony “Stitch” Picariello, a letter carrier at Bustleton Post Office, is collecting new Halloween costumes to donate to the oncology floor at CHOP. The effort is in memory of Sophia Pasquarella, who died at age 8 on Halloween of leukemia. Her dad, Pete, began collecting costumes the following year to donate to the kids at CHOP so they could enjoy trick or treating like every other kid. There are drop boxes in the lobbies at the Bustleton and Somerton post offices and at the Somerton Youth Organization fields and clubhouse. The deadline to drop off is Oct. 10.
