Halloween trick or treating with social consciousness

The North Flatbush Avenue Business Improvement District celebrated its fourth annual Halloween Spooky-tacular event, hosted by the Pacific Street Bears Community Garden.More than 150 children from the Park Slope/Prospect Heights neighborhoods attended.

The event paid tribute to Reverend Clyde Allison, founder of the “Trick or Treat for Unicef” campaign. Since its inception, the campaign has raised $148 million dollars for children in need throughout the world.

Allison’s son and daughter-in-law, Monroe and Diane Allison, resident of Park Slope, were in attendance during the celebration.

Reverend Allison passed away in February 2009. The BID will continue his legacy by supporting “Trick or Treat for Unicef” during Halloween.
