UNICEF

Thoreau community raises $1363 throughTrick or Treat for UNICEF http://www.unicefusa.org//!

This donation to UNICEF has come at a time when there has never been a greater need for those who are able to help others less fortunate than themselves. This collection is a credit to Thoreau and the many splendid hearts and minds of our children and the community at large. These funds have the potential to give many children a brighter future! For example through UNICEF: $10 can provide 321 packets of essential vitamins to infants with malnutrition, $25 can vaccinate 42 children against polio, $50 can provide 10 children with pencils and exercise books, $140 can send a kit that provides 10 families with safe drinking water. A huge THANK YOU to our children who collected and our community who gave!

 

Happy Holidays from the PTG!
