Operation Gratitude: Halloween Candy Give-Back Program

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.

Another great program to show thanks and gratitude to our troops. They deserve this and much more for all our troops do around the world to ensure and protect freedom.

Hi Nina- thank you for sharing this!!! You know, years ago during the First Gulf War I remember we all sent packages and letters to them all of the time. I found a dentist near me so I can donate my candy!

Hi Nina,
I had no idea there was such a thing. I discovered (thanks to your link) there is a drop-off point in Wenatchee.  Ironically, it's a dentist... trying to get all that candy out of town!  LOL

Carol Williams hi Carol... dentist and orthodontist offices seem to be the most common drop-off sites for the candy give-back. It does seem a bit counter-intuitive, but you're probably right in saying those dentists are trying to get candy out of town.

What a great idea. We don't get any trick-or-treaters, if we did, you can be sure I'd find a cause to donate the extras. Dark chocolate is about the only candy you'll find here. D

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD hi Debb... I don't keep chocolate or candy in the house to avoid eating it. My husband eats only Lindt milk chocolate bars, so he always has a stash of those in his "man cave."
