Thanks to everyone who helped make our second annual Halloween Candy Buy Back a great success! We collected 400 lbs. of candy this year, which was more than double last year’s collection! That means more candy for Operation Gratitude (www.opgratitude) to include in their care packages for the troops. We also have a lot of cards that were made by the children, and we will include them with the candy. I am told the cards are also greatly appreciated by the troops.
We wanted to extend a special thank you to those in the community that helped out in our event this year:
- Community Choice Credit Union
- Huntington Bank
- Westborn Market
- Little Caesars
- Burger King
We feel that this is a great event because not only are we helping to support our troops, we are getting rid of that excess candy that causes cavities and contributes to childhood obesity. Thanks again for your support for the troops and our children’s health!
