Events Annual Halloween Costume Drive

Annual Halloween Costume Drive

Thank you for helping us make a difference this season!

Donations are now closed.

Joyce University kicked off its 5th Annual Halloween Costume Drive to support the patients at Primary Children’s Hospital. Donations are now closed.

Last year, the Joyce community stepped up to deliver more than one thousand donations to the kids at Primary Children’s, meeting 100% of their holiday needs, and this year the community helped us give these patients the most thrilling Halloween yet with donations of new, unused costumes for kids of all ages.

See the list below for donated items.

How to Donate

While donations are now closed, there were many ways to contribute to our Halloween drive this year. In addition to physical donations which were made at our Draper campus in Utah, we also accepted Amazon deliveries and monetary donations.
