BIRMINGHAM (Oct. 12, 2022) — You can help patients at Children’s of Alabama celebrate Halloween.

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

The card drive, which Protective sponsors, 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, but you can still make a difference by sending a card through the website or purchasing other gifts from the hospital’s online registry.

The online registry features gifts for boys and girls of all ages. By shopping there, you can ensure that you will be purchasing a gift that fits within the hospital’s guidelines. Children’s can not accept food/candy, stuffed animals, toys that depict violence, religious items, crocheted/knit items, and gently used or homemade items on behalf of patients.
