Despite challenging times and increased pressure on hospitals during COVID-19, Spirit Halloween continues to pull out the stops to benefit hospitalized kids. Pandemic protocols will not allow for a Spirit Halloween party onsite at UC Davis Children's Hospital, so the specialty retail store is donating treats and free costumes for us to distribute to our patients. Combine this with Spirit's generous contributions to our child life fellowship and education program, and we can continue to provide the best care to our kids and their families throughout the year."

Spirit Halloween's Spirit of Children Foundation raises money annually for child life programs across the U.S. These programs are dedicated to helping minimize the anxiety of hospitalization, increasing understanding and strengthening coping skills for sick and injured children and their families. Spirit Halloween donations fund training and supervision for aspiring certified child life specialists. In 2020, Spirit Halloween donated nearly $102,000 to the UC Davis Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Department. This record-setting donation eclipsed the previous year by $30,000.
