Island senior hopes to bring back Trick or Treat for UNICEF tradition

Christina Mortimer has always associated Halloween with UNICEF. As far as she’s concerned, the two go together like costumes and candy. But when she moved from Toronto, Canada, to Mercer Island five years ago and celebrated her first Halloween in America, Mortimer realized that few Islanders had even heard of Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. This Halloween, the Mercer Island High School senior is going to change that.

Fun Island haunts for Halloween

The Lakes neighborhood will once again organize its annual Halloween trick-or-treat on Oct. 31, and keeping with previous years will hold a food drive for Mercer Island Food Pantry. The charitable Halloween tradition began in 1998, when resident Polly Addison set collections boxes at each Lakes entryway, asking visitors to donate non-perishable foods. Since then, the food-drive has become part of the overall Lakes Halloween festivity.
