The Vergennes Union Elementary School will be hosting its 3rd annual Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF change collection effort this Halloween. With so many challenges in the world, kids often feel that there is little they can do to help affect true change. Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF helps empower kids to help other kids in a program that makes every penny count. Funds are used in the U.S. and around the world to help children impacted by famine, war, extreme weather, and more. Items purchased with donated change include clean drinking water, medical & educational supplies, food, and warm blankets.
Come join in for Halloween fun that will help make a difference in the world and bond with the community. All you need to do is keep a little bowl of spare change next to your candy bowl on Halloween night (or in your trunk at the Legion’s Trunk-or-Treat event prior to Halloween). Kids with orange UNICEF collection boxes will ask for spare change donations along with their Halloween treats.
