Prepare to donate to UNICEF this Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner and students on the Alpha team at Shelburne Community School (SCS) are helping all the classes get ready to trick-or-treat for UNICEF. These kids aren’t going door to door just for a sweet fix, but to help children around the world by collecting coins for UNICEF. Oct-5-T-E-UNICEF-S
UNICEF helps provide clean water, food, and emergency care to the world’s most vulnerable children. Everyone at SCS will get a UNICEF box and students will ask their neighbors to help them fill it.
Last year, students at SCS collected over $1,000 for UNICEF to help children who do not have clean water, medicine, food, and shelter. With just 10 cents, UNICEF can help a family purify 12 gallons of water for their children that have no clean water for eating and drinking. Four cents will provide the Vitamin A that will protect a child from blindness. Six cents provides lifesaving penicillin. Small sums have large impacts.
In the 50 plus years this program has been in existence, participating kids have collected over $115 million dollars to help children that don’t have the food, water, and medicine they need to survive. Remember UNICEF this Halloween and tell others about how they can help with just a few coins.
