For patients at Hasbro Children’s Hospital, a taste of Halloween came a bit early when employees of Spirit Halloween made a visit to the hospital on Thursday, October 12.

Complete with costumes to keep, “spooky” arts and crafts activities, face painting and pumpkin painting, the afternoon of fun was part of the company’s “Spirit of Children” activities.

From the Tomorrow Fund Clinic to the hospital's playrooms on the 4th and 5th floors, Spirit volunteers spent nearly two hours helping bring smiles to patients' faces.

Spirit Halloween has long been a supporter of Hasbro Children’s Hospital. In addition to hosting annual Halloween parties, the company organizes an in-store fundraiser each year, and has raised more than $261,000 for the hospital to date. Through October 31, customers who purchase their costumes at local Spirit Halloween locations can receive 10% off their entire purchase using this coupon, and Spirit Halloween will donate the 10% to Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
