Trick or Treat for UNICEF this weekend

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF logoWhat are you doing this weekend?

Be sure to spend part of your time taking part in some way in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.

This program began in Philadelphia in 1950, the idea of Presbyterians Clyde and Mary Emma Allison who wondered “Why can’t kids collect food for starving children?”

In the sixty years since those orange cartons (decorated milk cartons were first used) have been used by children and adults to raise almost $160 million dollars.

Those funds are used by UNICEF to provide food, medicine, and education to help children thrive.

By participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, Presbyterians serve in the global neighborhood as disciples of Jesus who calls us to love one another.

The Office of Child Advocacy provides a bulletin insert on Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF in color and in black and white.
