MAYS LANDING — Spencer’s and Spirit Halloween donated more than 400 new and gently-worn professional clothing items to Atlantic Cape Community College’s Campus Closet at the Mays Landing campus on Thursday, January 25.

Spencer’s and Spirit Halloween’s Egg Harbor Township corporate headquarters, which has been in operation locally since 1977, recently hosted the donation drive during the month of January. The drive yielded an impressive number of men’s long-sleeved shirts, men’s dress pants and shirts, men’s suits, women’s two-piece suits and belts. The company holds donation drives throughout the year as a way to give back to its surrounding communities.

“Every month we host a donation drive and we select either one or multiple organizations to work with,” said Leigh Chairman, Community Relations Manager, Spencer’s and Spirit Halloween.

Its commitment to charity is evident through Spencer’s and Spirit Halloween’s two largest initiatives: Boobies Make Me Smile Foundation and Spirit of Children. The Foundation partners with organizations that are similarly committed towards the fight against cancer in young adults through action, education, prevention and support. The Spirit of Children is all about providing fun and funds to area hospitals throughout the year, particularly at Halloween, through generous donations that support Child Life departments at partner hospitals in area communities. The donations provide accessories, costumes, decorations and more for Halloween parties.

The Campus Closet provides lightly-worn professional clothes from men’s business suits, shirts, pants, ties and shoes to women’s dresses, skirts, blouses, jackets, shoes and accessories for students currently enrolled at Atlantic Cape who may need of casual business attire for professional interviews, class presentations, events and various college-related activities.

The Campus Closet is located in room G-223 on the second floor of the Student Center (G Building) and a dressing room is available in room G-217. Hours of operation are Mondays and Tuesdays, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 2 - 5 p.m., and Wednesdays, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 3 - 5 p.m. Visit or contact The Campus Closet at for more information on how, where and when to donate.
