Spending the holidays in the hospital is not easy for anyone, especially children. You can help make Halloween memorable for Children’s of Alabama patients by sending them a card.

Through Oct. 30, you can send free greeting cards to children in the hospital. Visit and select one of three card designs. Hospital staff will print and distribute the cards to patients on Tuesday, Oct. 31.

Protective Life Corporation has sponsored Halloween activities at Children’s for the past nine years. The card drive gives the public a chance to bring smiles to children’s faces during a time when hospital visitation is limited. Children’s cannot accept in-person gift donations, food/candy, stuffed animals, toys that depict violence, religious items, crocheted knit items, and gently used or homemade items on behalf of patients.
