Being in the hospital during Halloween can be a hard break for a child. Undergoing medical procedures and being sick is an unfair substitute for trick or treating. On October 11th, our partners at Samsung Electronics set out to make a hospital Halloween a little more fun. 40 Samsung volunteers, including 16 Samsung family members, partnered with enCourage Kids for their annual Samsung Day of Service with a mission of sending Halloween cheer to hospitalized children. In just over three hours, the Samsung team put together nearly 2,000 spooky-fun-filled Halloween Treat Bags complete with games, art supplies, finger puppets, and just a little candy. Through Samsung Day of Service, our hospital partners across the country will be able to share trick-or-treating with the children in their care.
Thank you Samsung for making hospitals a better place to get better this Halloween! enCourage Kids Foundation truly values the commitment of time and hard work our Samsung Day of Service volunteers gave to this project. We hope to see you all again next year.
