Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is celebrating Halloween with its annual greeting card drive running through Oct. 29.
Supporters are invited to take part in the drive by visiting chla.org/halloween and choosing one of three ready-to-color designs (cat, dog and bunny) and write a personal message to a patient.
“Halloween is such a fun time for kids and that’s why we are so excited to host our Pumpkin Party in person for the first time in three years. With safety as our top priority, this event will take place outside and maintain physical distancing,” said Carol Hamamoto, manager of child life and expressive arts and therapies at CHLA. “The Halloween cards are a great way for the community to engage and celebrate the day with our patients who can’t leave the hospital to go trickor-treating.”
The coloring cards with special notes will be printed and hand delivered by CHLA’s Child Life team to pediatric patients, with fun goody bags to celebrate the season. Delta Air Lines has pledged to give $1 to the hospital for each card sent by Oct. 29, committing up to $25,000.
