Halloween Costumes Sought for Hospitalized Children

October 04, 2012

Want to brighten a sick child’s Halloween holiday? Children’s Medical Center (www.childrens.com) would appreciate donations of new Halloween costumes and accessories for patients of all ages.

Costumes most needed are those designed for infants and toddlers up to 2 years old and for children ages 10 and older. These costumes will be used by the hundreds of children who will be celebrating Halloween in the hospital.

New, fully wrapped costumes may be dropped off at the hospital’s main entrance at 1935 Medical District Drive until noon on Oct. 31. No latex masks can be accepted due to allergy restrictions. Used costumes also cannot be accepted due to infection risks.

Put the holiday in Halloween by helping a child in need. All donations are appreciated.
