Please join the UNICEF Committee of Brooklyn For Peace in this year’s “Trick-or-Treat- for- UNICEF” activities.
“Trick-or-Treat-for-UNICEF” is part of the Kids Helping Kids movement of the United States Fund for UNICEF.
The funds raised help provide kids in need with health care, clean water, nutrition, education, emergency relief, and more.
This year a particular focus is on children impacted by Syria’s civil war. More than 4 million Syrian children are at risk as violence continues.
In 2012 we collected $1902.34 for UNICEF in spite of the cancellation of the Park Slope Halloween Parade because of Super Storm Sandy. To grow our campaign this year we need more volunteers! Here’s when (and where) you can pitch in:
Saturday October 12, 9 am to 2 pm: Ms. Kimberly Maier, Executive Director of the Old Stone House in Park Slope has invited us to have a table for handing out Trick-or-Treat-for- UNICEF collection boxes to families at their festival . Can you help to staff that table? (3rd St between 3rd and 4th Avenue)
Saturday, Oct. 26th:, 9 am to 2 pm: We will be distributing boxes to families at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket. If we can get more people to pitch in then we could also cover the Prospect Park entrance as well as the Central Library.
Sunday October 27, 9 am to 2 pm: We will be handing out collection boxes to families at the 5th Ave Farmers’ Market at 5th Ave & 3rd St.
Thursday October 31: Park Slope Halloween Parade! We will need to staff three collecting stations along the parade route. Diane Allison with her UNICEF puppet will be at one of the stations, entertaining the children. Would you like to join her in putting on a show for the adorable children in costumes who are turning in the money that they collected?!!!!
