Students from Mrs. Benjamin, Cinque, Hand, Houghtaling, Kline and Schwalb’s third grade classes collected just over $601 for UNICEF through its trick-or-treating program.
UNICEF is the United Nations Children’s Fund and was created in 1946 to help children in war-torn areas.
Proceeds from this year’s drive will go to areas devastated by recent disasters to help children there.
The trick-or-treating program began in 1950, according to unicefusa.org, and has raised more than $175 million.
UNICEF provided a packet with teaching materials and the orange boxes and students spent the entire month of October collecting donations.
