WCHC Candy Corn
It all started in 2010 at the Oregon School for the Deaf! West Coast Halloween Convention was started by Ed Roberts of OSD. We though it would be fitting to create a candy corn with the school colors and donate the proceeds to the WCHC 501c3!
West Coast Halloween Convention Grants
Behind everything that goes into the West Coast Halloween Convention, there is a desire to give back. From the extensive educational seminars, it offers to the array of vendors sharing their ideas, products, and advice on how to build your biggest and best-haunted attraction, this convention delivers! It is also unique in that it is the only Halloween themed convention that is a non-profit. The profits from the convention go directly to the kids.
The WCHC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all of the proceeds from the convention and its events go to support teachers and other professionals that work with deaf, hard-of-hearing and autistic students throughout the Northwest. Over the past few years, we have given out thousands of dollars in grants to help deaf and/or autistic children in our area.
