Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Annual Halloween Greeting Card Drive Kicks off on CHLA.org

The public is invited to choose one of three holiday-themed designs and include a personal message on cards that will be distributed to patients

LOS ANGELES--()--It’s officially Halloween time at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). The hospital is inviting supporters and friends in the community to take part in ‘treating’ its young patients by going to CHLA.org/Halloween October 20-31 and creating a special greeting card for the Halloween holiday. Individuals can choose any of the three holiday-themed designs (a raccoon, a squirrel and a cat) and write a personal message of cheer to a patient. The site went live Thursday morning, Oct. 20.

The cards will be hand-delivered to patients along with fun goody bags on Halloween. 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.
