Miami Dolphins players, cheerleaders, T.D. and members of the Miami Dolphins Women’s Organization helped Miami-Dade County school children shop for Halloween costumes at Party City in Davie. Twenty students from Santa Clara Elementary in Miami-Dade were treated to a Halloween costume of their choice by the Miami Dolphins Foundation and Party City. 

“It’s awesome to be able to come here and pick out costumes for kids who might not have the opportunity to do so otherwise,” said Jared Odrick.  “It’s been a great opportunity (for us) and something that we’ve done over the past couple of years and I take part in it every year.” 

The 20 students were chosen due to good academic standing, improved grades and exemplary attendance. Many of these students are economically disadvantaged and will be shopping for Halloween costumes for the first time.
