A Sweet Way To Use Up Leftover Halloween Candy & Say Thank You To Those Who Serve
Have you got leftover Halloween candy? 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 nibbling through all the extra candy in the weeks to come! Did you know that over the next three weeks, Operation Gratitude will receive donations totalling 400,000 to 500,000 pounds of candy as part of its Halloween Candy Give-Back Program.
