We need volunteers to staff collection boxes along the parade route on Halloween, Wednesday, October 31 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. Additionally, there are collection times prior to the parade on:
- Saturday October 27, 2012 – Grand Army Pl Farmers Market

Sign up using this easy MySignUp to volunteer, for either the weekend before the parade or at the parade itself.
You can also call Monroe Allison, UNICEF Campaign Coordinator, at 718-857-0811 or 917-601-5924 to sign up, or for more information.
Also, you can do your own fundraising. Participate in the“Do it yourself” Trick or Treat for UNICEF event. If you want to run a campaign in their apartment building, at work, on their block, or their church, you can download this announcement poster and pick up (or we will deliver them to you) the collection boxes and other materials. Please contact us for details on how to get involved.
For more than 60 years, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has served as the Original Kids Helping Kids campaign. In 1950, children across America were inspired to collect coins for UNICEF to aid children abroad enduring the after-effects of World War II. It was not just a charity effort—it was a call to end the needless suffering of their more vulnerable peers around the globe. Since then, for generations of Americans, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has been a powerful way to make a difference in the lives of the world’s children
Please join us again to support this important event. I hope we can count on you to help.
Anyone who would like to have UNICEF boxes delivered anywhere in the city, you can call 1-800-FOR-KIDS. Usually they need 2 days notice to deliver.
