Just as we sometimes have days where we can’t find the right clothes to wear, scarecrows sometimes come up with clothing shortages, too! The Festival provides hundreds of pairs of pants and long-sleeved shirts (or sweatshirts) for our scarecrows, but are currently still in need of both types of items.

Please help our scarecrows by cleaning out your closet of clothing that you want to donate to our organization. Receipts will be provided for tax purposes. Please bring clothing directly to the Scarecrow Program Area or our Information Tent while you’re at the Festival.

Our Scarecrows thank you for your support!
