Support Child Lifeat Virtua
Since 2011, Spirit Halloween has donated than $200,000 in support of the child life program at Virtua, bringing extra comfort to children and their families in our care. Child life at Virtua provides developmental, educational and therapeutic support for children undergoing medical treatment.
Through the organization’s Spirit of Children program, the costume superstore offers a "10 for 10" coupon with which customers can donate 10 percent of their purchase to Virtua Foundation this Halloween season. Spirit Halloween also throws a party for hospitalized children and their families. The 2016 Spirit Halloween discount fundraiser is now available at several South Jersey stores.
“Many of our employees live and shop in this area and are patients at Virtua,” said Randy Anthony, director of Spirit stores, Mid-Atlantic Region. “People in South Jersey want to support their local hospital. This grassroots support is really important to us.
In October, employees from area stores bring crafts and costumes to Virtua Voorhees to cheer up pediatric patients for an afternoon filled with fun and laughter.
Spirit of Children hosts nearly 100 of these Halloween events annually for children in hospitals across the country and has raised more than $22 million for Child Life departments in the U.S. and Canada.
