The UNICEF Carnival is one of our oldest traditions* here at Emerson, raising funds to help children around the world while our community comes together for fun!


All ages get one more chance to wear their Halloween costumes

Pizza lunch Old-fashioned carnival games

Game prize tickets redeemable at our trading post of gently-used toys.


Tickets for food and games are sold in $5 and $10 packs. All proceeds go toward UNICEF’s work in the world.


In addition, throughout the month of October we’re sharing our Sunday plate offerings with the US fund for UNICEF. This organization has a five-star rating with Charity Navigator.


*Volunteer to help at one of our booths–see our online signup

*Go through the bookshelves and toy boxes and quiet corners of your house- got any gently-used toys, books, or movies to donate to our Trading Post! This is the wonderful place where children get to turn in their game winnings!

*Consider what you might bake for our Cake Walk! And remember, it does not have to be a cake! Did somebody say lasagna?

*Contribute to Share-the-Plate throughout the month of October—75% of our offering goes to UNICEF’s work in the world.


You can help Friday night, Sunday morning, or Sunday afternoon, as well as a few opportunities on the Sundays leading up to the event. Thanks!


Trading Post


Got gently-used toys, sporting goods, and children’s books and media you’ve been meaning to cull? Our trading post acts as a churchwide “hand-me-down” system.


Bring your items to Westwood Hall in October and follow the signs to their short-term storage area upstairs.
