Donate Halloween Candy to Our Troops!
So, Halloween has come and gone for anther year...
You went and bought all this candy-- and it was fun handing it out to the kiddies and co-workers...
BUT- you still have a lot left!
Sure you could sit around eat it for the next 6 months or so- until you gain 10 pounds and a couple of cavities...
You might just toss it in the garbage after a while....
OR-- INSTEAD-- -you could donate your candy to our troops- and maybe get some cash too!
To donate your Halloween candy.
Does that sound weird?
It's a great program setup by Operation Gratitude- they get dentists to collect candy to send as part of care packages to troops serving overseas!
The dentists perhaps give YOU a toothbrush, a certificate, or maybe even cash by the pound- in exchange for your leftover sweets!
Where can you donate Halloween candy?
