Spirit Halloween Supports Child Life

Associates from Spirit Halloween organize Halloween party for patients at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU

Each year, Spirit Halloween associates throw a Halloween party for patients at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU. This year 30 patients participated in this annual tradition. Associates brought costumes, activities, and more for patients and their families.

Spirit of Children, the philanthropic arm of Spirit Halloween, has raised more than $376,000 to benefit the Children's Hospital of Richmond's Child Life Program.

“The goal of child life is to make life as normal as possible for patients and families in the hospital, and Spirit of Children helps us make that an everyday reality,” said Heather Rossi, senior child life specialist at CHoR. “We want our community to know that while they are having fun selecting a costume or decorations they are also helping us make life better for kids in the hospital. Recent donations have allowed us to expand our team and bring child life services into the Children’s Pavilion and emergency room.”

Spirit Halloween will be accepting donations for local children's hospitals until Halloween. Use this 10-for-10 coupon to get 10% off of your purchase, and another 10% donated to CHoR.
