Dear Ms. Stern:

We are delighted and proud to tell to tell you that the Davis, California community worked together to raise $18,068 during our 2017 Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign.  The Davis United Nations Association sent a check for $14,310 on November 14, and a check for $3,758 is attached.  We are pleased to know that our November contribution will be combined with that of other communities and become part of a 5X-matched donation.

This campaign truly has support across the community.  Many individuals, organizations and businesses contributed to the success of this year’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign.  Once again, the Davis City Council kicked off the annual Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF drive.  They were joined by elementary students who passed around the Trick-or-Treat boxes to those present in the council chambers and members of the high school UNICEF club who extolled the virtues of UNICEF.

At elementary schools across town, teachers, parents, administrators and staff at Davis schools provided instruction, support and encouragement to children who learned first-hand about the responsibilities and rewards of global citizenship.  This year, the student leadership council at a junior high kicked off a campaign there as well.  Friends and neighbors responded generously to youngsters who collected door-to-door for UNICEF.  Businesses did their part by allowing customers to fill the little oranges boxes with their spare change.  Community members made generous contributions both during community events and directly to our UNICEF account at First Northern Bank in Davis.  But it was the young people of Davis who took the lead in making this year’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF a success. 

We remain grateful that Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF gives our entire community an opportunity to express our concern for the youngest victims of war, poverty, disaster, and disease, and to find comfort ourselves through this action. 

Our warmest thanks go to the United States Fund for UNICEF and to UNICEF itself for its efforts on behalf of children worldwide.
