Sixty years of Trick or Treat

UNICEF Box Man Several anniversaries were celebrated during the 219th General Assembly (2010) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in Minneapolis.

The Presbyterian Peacemaking Program marked thirty years of ministry.

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF marked its sixtieth anniversary.

For sixty years, children have been helping vulnerable children have access to things like water, education, food and medicine, simple things that truly change lives. This simple project has made amazing differences around the world.

And Presbyterians helped to start it. Presbyterians Clyde and Mary Emma Allison helped organize the first Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF outside of Philadelphia. Clyde was a Presbyterian minister working in the church's curriculum department.
