Children trick or treat at Memorial's Children's Hospital

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Children at the Memorial University Medical Center's Children's Hospital is getting in to the Halloween spirit with a little trick or treating.

This is the 26th year in a row that the young patients got to celebrate Halloween, despite being in the hospital. Departments and volunteers from throughout the Memorial Health family made their way throughout the Children's Hospital as they trick or treat in children's rooms.

"Halloween for kids is a big event and so the fact that they are in the hospital and not going to be able to participate in the Halloween activities is a real challenge for them. So we try to bring Halloween here to them," said Heather Newsom, R.N., Clinical Director.

This year the children got a special treat. Actress McKenna Grace, who is currently filming the movie "The Gift" on Tybee Island, visited with the children at the hospital.
