RIT Students Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF in Local Neighborhoods

Follow RITNEWS on Twitter This Halloween, students at Rochester Institute of Technology will trick-or-treat for much more than candy. On Monday, Oct. 31, RIT students will grab the traditional orange collection boxes and head out to local Rochester and Henrietta neighborhoods to collect donations for the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF).

RIT apparel—or any orange and brown—is the costume of choice.

Blair Brown, a fourth-year environmental science student, and Erhardt Graeff, a fourth-year information technology and international studies student, are spearheading the service project with sponsorship from Residence Life, Student Government, and the RIT Honors Program.

Teams will be formed at the Grace Watson Lobby on the RIT campus between 5:30 and 9 p.m., given collection boxes and then sent to a local neighborhood to “trick-or-treat” for UNICEF. Donuts and cocoa will be provided for returning teams.

NOTE TO MEDIA: For information about press opportunities on Monday night, contact Erhardt Graeff at 717-919-3145 or ecg5204@rit.edu.
