SMHS Key Club Says: Make Halloween Count!

UNICEF, United Nations International Children’s Education Fund, began 58 years ago. The original “Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF” is the most successful and most trusted “kids-helping-kids” fundraising campaign in the world. This year the Key Club at San Marcos High School is joining in the efforts of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF and the Kiwanis Family to raise urgently needed funds for the Swazi Children Care Project-a lifesaving program that funds hundreds of neighborhood care points where orphaned and vulnerable children can receive a warm meal, shelter, medical care, education, and protection. Key Clubs around the world have committed to raising 2 million dollars for the Swazi Children Care Project. SMHS Key Club members are hosting their first Fall Carnival as a fund raiser benefiting UNICEF.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 25 from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at De Zavala Elementary campus. Students in kindergarten through the 4th grade are invited to attend this Halloween event. Costumes are welcome. Booths, contest, food, and a haunted house will be some of the attractions. Tickets may be purchased at the door. Students not accompanied by their parent, must be signed in at the entrance.
