HALLOWEEN CANDY DRIVE
CALLING ALL GHOSTS AND GOBLINS, WHO WANTS TO SHINE A LIGHT
ON FAMILIES CARING FOR CRITICALLY ILL CHILDREN?
Our annual Halloween Candy Drive is a weeklong initiative aimed to spark conversation and engage with our children and the community about the value in giving up only a few pieces of their coveted Halloween Candy. In the process, The B Fund will contribute *$.25 to Boston Children’s Hospital for each piece of candy donated from a child’s personal stash. *(Up to $10,000.)
To date, over 3,120 participants have donated over 70,000 pieces of candy during this weeklong campaign.
Once collected, volunteers inspect, sort and place the candy into bags that are customized with a personalized note of encouragement and/or thanks. These delicious treasures are then delivered to the staff and family members who are caring for these children.
