On October 31, 2022, volunteers at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children brought Halloween celebrations to young inpatients and their families who would have otherwise missed trick-or-treating due to their hospital stays. The Child Life Department at St. Chris organized the event and recruited the volunteers, including Drexel MD students, to deliver and assist with costumes for any children who wanted to wear them.
The volunteers and members of the medical staff, many in costumes themselves, visited the children’s rooms in a “reverse trick-or-treating” event that brought smiles and good cheer to the patients and their families, as well as to the staff and volunteers.
