Dear Ms. Stern: 
 
We are pleased to report that the Davis, California community worked together to raise $12,000 during our 2016 Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign, despite a rather stormy night on Halloween. A check for that amount is attached. We are also delighted to know that our contribution will, once again, be combined with that of other communities and become part of a triple-matched donation. 
 
This campaign continues to have broad community support in Davis. Many individuals, organizations, and businesses contributed to the success of this year’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign. Continuing its decades long tradition, the Davis City Council kicked off the annual Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF drive. 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. The local newspaper, the Davis Enterprise, reported on the campaign to get the word out. Friends and neighbors responded generously to the young people who collected door-to-door for UNICEF. 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 once again took the lead in making this year’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF a success. 
 
We remain incredibly grateful that the US Fund for UNICEF’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF project gives our entire community an opportunity to express our concern for our brothers and sisters in humanity through action, 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. We particularly wish to thank the generous donor who will triple match our contribution. 
 
Sincerely, 
 
Verena Borton, President United Nations Association, Davis
