Put All That Halloween Candy to Good Use

November 5, 2012 — By

By now, the kids have had their fill, and you are beginning to realize that your own waistline cannot take much more, but throwing out all that “food” just doesn’t seem right.  Sound familiar?  We have a solution.  Donate your Halloween candy to our troops overseas!  A rather fitting gesture as we head to the polls to exercise one of our greatest freedoms.

We admit that candy is not the healthiest thing we could be sending our troops, but a few fun-sized treats from home won’t hurt, and could raise spirits.   Several organizations that regularly send care packages to our troops are collecting Halloween candy along with other donations, such as toothbrushes (surprise) and travel-sized toiletries.  Don’t forget to tuck in a hand-written note or greeting card as well; messages of thanks are always appreciated.   Visit these sites to learn more:

 We thank our troops and their families for their service and their sacrifice!
