Operation Gratitude:

A Sweet Way To Send Leftover Halloween Candy & Say Thank You To Those Who Serve


Got leftover candy from Halloween? Why not donate your leftover Halloween candy to our troops via the Operation Gratitude program? Donating your leftover Halloween candy to our military heroes has got to be a better idea than to nibble through all the extra candy in the weeks to come!

 

 Operation Gratitude Collects Halloween Candy For Troops

Operation Gratitude Halloween Candy For Troops

 

Click here for detailed information about the 2018 Halloween Candy For The Troops Program. This link to the Operations Gratitude Blog also provides information on how you can organize and publicize a candy collection event (maybe too late this year, but you can plan for 2019). What a great idea for kids to get involved in doing something great at Halloween time!

 

Check for Halloween Candy GIVE-Back Locations here, as many dentist offices, schools, and other groups/service clubs and businesses all around the nation have registered their Halloween events with Operation Gratitude and have agreed to send donated candy to this cause.

 

Operation Gratitude sends more than 200,000 care packages annually filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, plus personal letters of appreciation, to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors, Care Givers and to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed overseas.  Since 2003 more than 1 million "care" packages have been sent out to our military heros. They would also love for you to like the Operation Gratitude Facebook Page.

Please help to spread the word about this great program. November is a great month to show gratitude -- why not pay it forward to our brave military and first responders who sacrifice so much for us? This year, as part of the Halloween Candy Give Back Program, Operation Gratitude is asking also for much-needed donations of dental floss and travel-size toothpaste, as well as pens and mechanical pencils.

 

In the Charlotte, North Carolina metro area, you can take your leftover candy to:

 

  • Murdoch Orthodontics:  8390 Charlotte Highway | Indian Land, SC 29707 (near Ballantyne)
  • Brookdale Dental Care: 9621Brookdale ZPlace | Charlotte, NC 28215
  • Apex Dental: 1505 Ebenezer Road | Rock Hill, SC 29732

Great idea to get that extra candy OUT of the house. LOL

We have a local dentist to pays kids per the pound for candy and then he donates it.

Good morning Nina Hollander,

I'm so glad that Kathy Streib featured your post in her "Ah-h" moments for the week series. I missed it and it's an excellent way to give to our veterans. We actually do the same thing so I took in our left over candy to the office where they are collecting from everyone and sending it off.

What a great idea. I hadn't heard of this, and just looked to see if there were any areas near me that collect candy and there are. I'm going to get in touch with the contact today just to make sure before I bring candy over!

Thanks!
