Students at Washington Drive Primary School who participated in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF gathered in the school’s cafetorium on Nov. 4 to count the amount of money they raised for children in need. 

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF began 69 years ago as a way to help kids still affected by World War II. Since then, trick-or-treaters have helped raise more than $175 million since 1950. 

Carol Lang said that students learn that even small donations can make a difference. For example, $1 can provide clean drinking water for up to two months, $3 supplies families with seven packets of therapeutic food, $7 provides students with a pack of 10 notebooks, and $7 allows them to purchase a warm fleece blanket.
