Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF

Sun Valley Elementary School will continue to help raise money for United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) this year by participating in "Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF." The main goal for this is to raise money for UNICEF to help with projects pertaining to child development and survival around the world. Finding self-sustaining clean water around the world is a necessity but many do not have this necessity. Money that is collected by the school will be donated directly to UNICEF. Last year, students in all grade levels helped with this global project by collecting $205.61. All boxes are due Monday, November 3, 2014.
