  • Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF

    For 61 years now, children in the United States have dressed in costume on Halloween night and gone door to door collecting coin donations for UNICEF. Since 1994, Key Club has joined in the fun Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF, a worldwide organization that, like Kiwanis, is dedicated to serving children’s needs. Over the years, Key Clubbers—with help from Builders Clubs and K-Kids clubs— have raised nearly $5 million for iodine deficiency programs worldwide, HIV and AIDS programs in Kenya and Swaziland and, most recently, Operation Uruguay: Protecting the rights of children.

    Join Key Club, Builders Club and K-Kids in their effort to raise funds for The Kiwanis Eliminate Project by Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF this Halloween.
