Wilton trick-or-treaters raise $5K for UNICEF

Cider Mill, Miller-Driscoll and Montessori School students, along with generous donations from patrons of The Village Market, raised $5,345.33 for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF this Halloween.

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF began in 1950 as a way to help children who need more than candy. Since then, youngsters nationwide have gone door-to-door on Halloween with UNICEF collection boxes, calling out, “Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF!” Over the past 64 years, more than $170 million has been raised nationwide.

The money the children raised will give a child 40 days of clean, safe water for $1, feed a malnourished child for five days for $5, vaccinate 280 children for $10, protect 100 children from malaria for $10 and install a water pump to serve a whole village for $500.
