UNICEF Clubs Add Meaning to Their Halloweening

October 24, 2022

With Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF transforming into a new, digital experience this year, UNICEF Clubs around the country have been even more excited to host fundraisers and celebrations to raise critical funds for the world's most vulnerable children. Have a look at some of our favorite fabulous (and sometimes frightening) Club Trick-or-Treat events: 

Cauldrons, Cobwebs & Community Service

Plano East Senior High School, Plano, TX

UNICEF Club members at Plano East High School in Texas spread Halloween cheer by selling candy and hosting a get-together where they made blankets out of plastic bag yarn to donate to local homeless shelters.

Roswell High School, Roswell, GA

In Georgia, Roswell High School UNICEF Club members joined other UNICEF UNITERs at the Atlanta Symphony Spooktacular Event, where they shared UNICEF's work with the Atlanta community by providing some fun hands-on activities for children and their families to enjoy before being seated for the show.

Seven Lakes High School, Katy, TX

For the Seven Lakes UNICEF Club in Katy, TX, Halloween season isn't spooky but rather a season of giving. Club members decided to spend their meeting writing and decorating uplifting Halloween-themed cards for children at St. Jude's Hospital.

Haunted Houses, Hocus Pocus & Helping Others

Folsom High School, Folsom, CA

In California, Folsom High’s UNICEF Club hosted a very special Trunk-or-Treat event, where students could compete against one another in Halloween-themed games like “Jack-o-Lantern Mini Golf,” “Mummy Bowling” and “Witch Hat Ring Toss.” 

Dulaney High School, Timonium, MD

The Dulaney High School UNICEF Club in Timonium, MD, sold Boo-Grams to their school community. Students could buy a spooky poem or secret note to be delivered by club members, with all the proceeds going to UNICEF.

Mayo High School, Rochester, MN

Rochester, MN's Mayo High School UNICEF Club hosted its annual movie night on their school's football field, where they orchestrated a fantastic outdoor movie experience for their classmates. Club members thought of everything, from the inflatable movie screen to Halloween concessions.

Tricks, Treats & Taking the QR Code!

Clark Magnet High School, Glendale, CA & Lenape High School, Medford, NJ

Bake sales are a UNICEF Club favorite — especially when selling fall treats! Clark Magnet High School in Glendale, CA, sold cookies for their “Clarktoberfest” and Lenape High School Club members in Medford, NJ, sold homemade Halloween-themed baked goods to their school community. 

Murray State University, Murray, KY

The UNICEF Club at Murray State University in Murray, KY, hosted its second annual Halloween Carnival selling treat bags, doing face painting and hosting games for UNICEF. 

Valencia High School, Valencia, CA, Dwight High School, New York, NY, & Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI

UNICEF Clubs at California's Valencia High School and New York City's Dwight High School were excited about the brand-new spooky Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF QR code! And Club members at Michigan State even included the QR code on some of the posters they carried during their school's annual Homecoming parade. 

Clubs, thank you all for your passion, energy and spook-tacular events hosted to support children worldwide!
