P.S. 39, the Henry Bristow School, is participating in the ‘Kids helping Kids’ UNICEF* campaign this year as part of our goal to help our students know they have power to make a difference in the world and be a power for good.
We ask those students who would like to participate to collect coins in the special UNICEF boxes and return them to school after Halloween. They may collect the donations while trick-or-treating, by asking friends and family, or by doing special tasks to earn money. We know you’ll make sure they do this in a wise and safe way.
UNICEFusa.org/stories has many wonderful videos to help kids see where children need help and how UNICEF is helping. It’s very important that they understand the good they’ll do. The money collected this year will mainly go to help those suffering from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria and from the earthquake in Mexico. Many children need temporary shelter, clean water, food, and schools.
Boxes should be returned to the classroom by November 8th.
