Jennifer Lopez Wants You to TrickorTreat for UNICEF
publish date: 2017-10-25
With Halloween less than a week away, Jennifer Lopez wants to enlist kids in collecting donations through "Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF."
The singer teamed up with UNICEF for the annual fundraiser, which this year asks kids to use the entire month of October, along with Halloween night, to help gather aid for the devastation left by Hurricane Maria. Donations will go directly to Puerto Rico, J.Lo's family's home island, which still is without electricity more than a month after the storm.
Michelle Centeno, senior officer of humanitarian emergencies and executive communications for UNICEF U.S.A., explained, “While conditions in Puerto Rico remain challenging, UNICEF U.S.A. is there, working to support children and families as they rebuild. The scale of need demands that we all play a role in this ongoing effort, and work closely with partners to put children first.”
