Spirit Halloween Brings Funds and Fun to Kids at Children’s

Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, in partnership with Spirit Halloween, hosted a Halloween party for patients and their families, complete with costumes, games and crafts on Oct. 15.

Through the Spirit of Children program, Spirit Halloween hosts nearly 100 Halloween parties at partner hospitals like Children’s across the country so patients, who otherwise wouldn’t be able to participate in Halloween celebrations, can enjoy the fun of the season despite being in the hospital.

Since the partnership between Spirit Halloween and Children’s began in 2011, Spirit of Children has raised $149,220 in critical funding for Children’s Child Life Department. Funds for Spirit of Children are raised via donations from customers at local Spirit Halloween stores and, in addition to contributions from vendors and business partners. One hundred percent of funds raised locally each year stay in Omaha to benefit Children’s.
