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

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–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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
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.
