Volunteers for Reverse Trick or Treating

The Child Life specialists at Children’s Hospital are planning this year’s Halloween festivities for their young patients, and you’re invited to join in the fun from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31.

Reverse trick-or-treating allows staff dressed in costume to deliver treats and small treasures to children in their hospital rooms. This events allow all children and teens to participate in Halloween festivities.

For the past two years, a small group from the University Libraries have participated. We make goodie bags and hand them out. Putting together the goodie bags takes an hour or so. Handing out the goodie bags also takes about an hour. If you do not want to go to the hospital to physically hand them out, you can always help with the goodie bags.  

If you are interested in participating, please email Taira Meadowcroft at meadowcroftt@health.missouri.edu by Friday, October 12th.
