Several children who are being treated at Maine Medical Center in Portland got a chance to get their Halloween costumes early thanks to the Spirit of Children program.

Several members of Spirit Halloween in South Portland brought Halloween costumes and cheer to several children and their parents on Wednesday afternoon that literally raised their spirits. Mark Curdo, host of the WCYY Morning Show Show, also handed out sunglasses and CYY stickers to the kids.
