LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Patients at Children's Hospital Los Angeles will be getting a treat this Halloween.

Supporters and friends are invited to take part in the hospital's annual Halloween greeting card drive.

Individuals can go to through October 31, choose from one of three ready-to-color designs and write a personal message of cheer to a patient.

The coloring cards with special notes will then be printed out and hand-delivered by CHLA's Child Life team to pediatric patients along with fun goody bags to celebrate the season.

An anonymous donor has pledged to give $1 to the hospital for each card sent by October 31, committing up to $75,000.

Even though the hospital is not able to hold its annual Pumpkin Party and costume dress-up for patients and families due to pandemic precautions, patients will be able to engage in a variety of seasonal-themed activities including pumpkin decorating and arts and crafts.
