Halloween might look a little different this year, but there are plenty of fun ways to make this Halloween extra special for children and families at our hospital.   

1. Give $20 to Share the Magic of Halloween

This year, we won’t be able to hold our hospital’s beloved Trick-or-Treat Trail. But we still have some tricks up our sleeves to bring the fun to our patients’ bedsides. Donate $20 (less than a bag of Halloween candy) and bring the magic of Halloween to our hospital!

2. Shop at Spirit Halloween

You can still enjoy the fun of dressing up and decorating while also supporting our hospital and patients! Now through October 31, shop at any of the Spirit Halloween stores below (or online with promo code CARING20) to receive 10 percent off your order, and Spirit Halloween will give 10 percent back to our hospital’s Child Life and Creative Arts Department. 

This year, Spirit Halloween has also generously donated 64 costumes, along with several activity books, crayons, and treat bags to our hospital for our patients to enjoy.

Dust off your stethoscopes, rock your best pair of scrubs, and snap a photo for us to share with our teams at the hospital. Every submission will spread appreciation and the Halloween spirit at the hospital! Send your photos to

4. Send a Spooky Surprise

Give your friends and family an extra special Halloween treat: a Halloween e-card! When you make your donation to our Halloween fundraiser, check the box “Dedicate my gift,” and you will have the option to make your gift in honor of someone and send them a Halloween e-card. What could be sweeter?
