Celebrating the Legacy of Reverend Allison, Founder of Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF

Recently the world lost a beloved member of the UNICEF family: Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF founder, Reverend Clyde M. Allison, died in Lowell, Indiana at the age of 91.

Reverend Allison organized the first Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF collection, just outside of Philadelphia, in 1950. His three children dressed in costumes on Halloween evening, but instead of asking for candy, they carried empty milk cartons and asked for donations of spare change, to help UNICEF.
