LeSportsac Halloween Celebration at Ivy House

Share This


The children and families of Ivy House had a very special Halloween celebration, thanks to our thoughtful friends at LeSportsac! The incredible team of LeSportsac volunteers brought their creativity to lead children in decorating new trick-or-treat bags, tasty cookies, and fun Halloween masks. With the generous gift of a karaoke machine, the families and staff had a blast singing all of their favorite hits. Face painting and pizza topped off the party for everyone.

The team from LeSportsac also brought some special gifts for all of the Ivy House children and adults. Each child received a brand-new backpack from LeSportsac with a new pair of pajamas, cozy blanket, and art supplies inside while each adult received a beautiful new LeSportsac bag to carry for work or play.


Thanks so much to LeSportsac for such wonderful thoughtfulness in planning this extraordinary Halloween event. It was a Halloween that the families of Ivy House will never forget!

"I’m at a loss for words to thank LeSportsac for all that they did for Ivy House. It was a pleasure to meet such a great group of people. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness.


The care and kindness that they showed encouraged our residents to participate in all the activities. Of course, the star of the party was the karaoke machine and we will be using it all the time! Everyone is now sporting their new LeSportsac bags and will have them to remember this special day."
- Linda Techell, Ivy House Director
