In October students of Mary Lee Burbank Elementary School embraced the “Kids Helping Kids” spirit and collected more than $1,800 for the annual Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF drive. The money raised will provide 3,600 children with therapeutic ready-to-use food or UNICEF backpacks for 360 students to attend school.
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF began in 1950 as a way to help kids who were still affected by World War II.
A friendly intraschool competition for the highest percentage of participation was won by Coleen Cox’s class pictured here with Principal Dr. Tricia Clifford, Jean Travia and Robyn Greenberg.
