Donate Halloween Candy to our Troops!

If your house is like mine, you’ve got leftover Halloween candy. Candy we don’t need. Candy we don’t want.  Candy that probably will end up at the office or thrown away. 

Did you know there’s an organization that would be HAPPY to get your  leftover (wrapped) Halloween candy?  And that this candy is shipped to our military personnel around the world?

Called “Operation Gratitude” (www.opgratitude.comtheir most urgent need is for:

  • personal letters,
  • candy, 
  • hand-made cool-ties /scarves,
  • Beanie Babies/WebKinz/Trolls
  • and financial donations to pay for postage. 

(On the website is an excerpt from a Marine’s letter:  “I live with 17 Marines and Sailors in one room. Everyone got a package and everyone loved it especially the cookies and beanie babies. The cookies are excellent and the beanie babies help us out a lot with the local kids. We give them candy and toys and they give us the location for IED’s. Once again, thank you for everything and for all the hard work that you put into the package. LCPL ND” 

Today’s Election Day.  

I’m thrilled to vote.  I’m honored I can do something that might put a smile on a soldier’s face.

Wrapped Halloween candy can be delivered/shipped by December 3 to:

 Operation Gratitude/California Army National Guard
17330 Victory Boulevard
Van Nuys, CA 91406

  1. Wow, that is a lot of candy! What a great idea….I did not have any leftover’s this year…I actually ran out in 45 mins. I definately was not expecting that many kids basing it on previous years. I see you are from SASK and now live down south….which is right next door to Alberta where I am from. My Dad is a SASK farm boy from way back……

    I am new here on WordPress and have not done much yet with my place, I tried last night banging out a blog and lost it! I was so devasted after all the writing…lol Guess it was not meant to be last night. I really am having a hard itme figuring everything out….how to put place things etc so I am out looking out at other peoples WordPress and stumbled across yours!

    Have a great day!
