It’s officially Halloween time at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). For the third consecutive year, the hospital is inviting supporters and friends in the community to take part in treating its young patients by going to chla.org/Halloween and creating a special greeting card for the Halloween holiday. Individuals can choose any of the three holiday-themed designs – a dog, a bat or an owl – and write a personal message of cheer to a patient.
The hospital hopes to generate more than 15,000 messages for patients. Cards will be hand-delivered to patients along with goody bags on Friday, Oct. 30. The special deliveries will tie in with the hospital’s other Halloween day-themed festivities including costume dress-up and arts and crafts.
Kids who are in the hospital might not be able to attend school parties or go trick-or-treating. Missing out on getting to celebrate Halloween with friends and classmates can make being in the hospital even more difficult. These special greeting cards and thoughtful words let CHLA patients and their families know how much people care.
