(Family Features) This Halloween, fewer families will be going door to door as the pandemic enters its predicted second wave. Seventy-three percent of people do not anticipate taking their children trick-or-treating at all, according to a Harris Poll survey. However, Halloween is not canceled, and there are ways parents and kids can still celebrate safely while also giving back to a good cause.
To promote social distancing, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is going completely virtual for the first time. As the longest running youth-led program in the United States, it has raised more than $180 million for kids in need since inception. In fact, the iconic American tradition is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year.
