When the OCU students delivered the costumes to the homeless children, it was a bit more like Christmas than Halloween, the children were so excited about their costumes, Agel said.

OMRF was just one stop on the children's trick-or-treating tour.

On Friday, they collected candy at Investra, and Tuesday the kids will again get to show off their personalized costumes at an undisclosed location.

Positive Tomorrows has about 42 children enrolled currently. The school can only accept up to 48 students, Agel said, and the school is actively filling the positions that recently became open.

This year alone, Agel said the school has had to turn away 31 children because of space limitations.

The nonprofit organization depends on funding from United Way, corporate and private donors, and fundraisers. On Nov. 27, the agency will hold a Gold Star Luncheon, one of its largest annual fundraisers. The event uses volunteer table captains who invite friends to sit at their tables. For information or to make a donation to Positive Tomorrows, go online to jbeasley@positivetomorrows.org or call 556-5082.
