ECBC had a BLAST yesterday hosting our annual BOO-ks for Treats at CHOC’s Halloween event! We gave away 428 new Halloween-themed books to costumed patients and their siblings who trick-or-treated at the hospital – -with patientgs having a fantsatic selection to choose from including traditional Halloween stories, Halloween joke books, anthologies of ghost stories, teen horror, spooky comic-style graphic novels, and books of creepy facts! This is a favorite event for ECBC — it’s so fun to be behind the thrill that kiddos (and their parents) express when coming up on our booth and realizing they get to pick out a wonderful book or two to add to their stash of candy and trinkets!
Thank you to everyone who supported our Halloween book drive leading up to BOO-KS for Treats — which requires a large number of specific titles to be collected quite quickly! And a huge shout out to Kera Montoya and Paper Pie for hosting a fundraiser that provided a significant number of books and helped us get to the totals we needed. Thank you also to Foothill High Schools Ethan & Choco Club for making awesome Halloween cards to give to patients as well. We so appreciate our community’s support in making this event happen!
