Key Club trick-or treats for UNICEF

While ghouls and goblins are terrorizing unsuspecting victims, members of the Ames High Key Club are fighting more troublesome foes. Since 1994, Key Club International has partnered with UNICEF in its fight to save millions of children’s lives. “I first heard about [Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF] in elementary school,” said senior Houston Breshears, Ames High Key Club president. “A few weeks ago, Mr. Seifert, our sponsor, received a box from UNICEF. I know that Key Club [International] has been doing it for years, so we decided to do it this year.” Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF was started in 1950 by a group of five children in Philadelphia. Although the children initially only collected $17, they successfully began a campaign that has since raised over $188 million worldwide. “We trick-or-treated for canned goods for MICA the past few years, but this year we decided to focus on UNICEF,” Breshears said. “We had 4 or 5 members participate last year. I don’t have a set number that I hope will show up this year, but I hope as many as possible.” Participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is quite simple, and those interested should speak with a Key Club officer. Although it is not tricky, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF does offer a huge treat—the knowledge that you are bettering a child’s life.
