For many years now, children in the United States have dressed in costume on Halloween night and gone door to door collecting coin donations for UNICEF. Since 1994, Key Club has joined in the fun Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF, a worldwide organization that, like Kiwanis, is dedicated to serving children’s needs. Over the years, Key Clubbers—with help from Builders Clubs—have raised nearly $5 million for iodine deficiency programs worldwide, HIV and AIDS programs in Kenya and Swaziland and, most recently, Operation Uruguay: Protecting the rights of children.
This year, all funds raised by Key Clubs and Builders Clubs through Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF will go to The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus.
Builders Clubs and Key Clubs will receive their collection boxes in early fall. Order any extra collection boxes from UNICEF.
