Trick or Treat For UNICEF Halloween is just around the corner, and once again this year, Angela and Tyler Wrage and friends will be collecting donations for UNICEF. UNICEF is a nonprofit organization that raises money for impoverished children and families around the world. A donation of just two dollars can provide nutrition for one hungry kid, and last year, we collected enough money to vaccinate 212 children against polio for life. Look for the orange donation boxes in the hands of trick-or-treaters. Thank you in advance for your support of this project.
