Medfield High School’s UNICEF Club is coordinating with the principals of Memorial, Wheelock and Dale to bring Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF back to Medfield this Halloween. The students in these schools will receive their UNICEF collection boxes the week of October 23.
Club members ask that residents who plan on passing out candy this Halloween also set aside spare change for the children collecting donations for UNICEF.
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF began 67 years ago as a way to help children still affected by World War II. Since then, millions of children across the United States have gone door-to-door on Halloween with UNICEF collection boxes, calling out, "Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF!” Since it’s inception in 1950, more than $175 million has been raised through UNICEF. This year, funds raised through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF will support UNICEF’s emergency relief work for children affected by recent disasters.
The MHS UNICEF Club asks that children bring their boxes back to school no later than Friday, November 3. The Club members will collect the boxes, count the coins and send Medfield's generous contributions to UNICEF.
