Children around the world are saved every week at McLean. The newly established UNICEF club, created by club president junior Sachi Dieker, works to diminish hardships children face.

An official chapter of The United Nations, United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) Club is part of a multinational network of similar clubs around the world. They are partnered with UNICEF USA and are present in local communities, serving as a grassroots way to promote their cause.

“We will be doing whatever we can to help children in need,” Dieker said. “You’ll see us around the school promoting this cause.”

Due to the charitable nature of the club, students will have many opportunities to get service hours.

“Starting next school year, students will be able to get service hours by helping out with Fundraising Events,” Dieker said. “Our upcoming charity events include charity booths at Celebrate McLean,  pancake breakfasts, UNICEF sports events…It’s all on its way.”

This year students are still welcomed and encouraged to help out with upcoming fundraising events.

“The next fundraising event will be in the upcoming month. Earth Day is coming up on April 22, so it will likely involve that,” Dieker said

The excitement surrounding UNICEF Club will lead to a promising future fulfilling the club’s ambitious goals.

“I see the club expanding to the size of other popular clubs at the school such as Model UN,” Dieker said. “The fact that others are passionate about this club…gives me so much confidence for the future”

All are encouraged to participate in UNICEF Club. They will be holding meetings weekly to discuss fundraising information. Follow them on Instagram for scheduling information

“We are very friendly, [and] we’d love to have you join,” Dieker said.
