Click to donate to Davidson Elementary’s UNICEF drive
On Halloween night (Wednesday, Oct. 31), children from Davidson Elementary School will be trick-or-treating for UNICEF to collect money for kids in need.
The program helps the students realize that they can do something to help the many children throughout the world who do not have enough food to eat, clothing to wear, or a place to live.
If you would like to contribute, please look for the trick-or-treaters with their UNICEF boxes or you can make a donation online. A UNICEF website has been created for Davidson Elementary at inside.unicefusa.org/goto/davidsonelementary
Davidson’s online goal is only $250 which is enough money to purchase a “School in a Box’ so that students in unsettled areas can learn anywhere.
