Are you wondering what to do with all that LEFTOVER Halloween candy? ANSWER! Soldiers’ Angels will ship it to the troops for you

After Halloween has come and gone: the costumes are put away, the kids have come down from the sugar high, the jack-o-lantern is starting to wilt… and there are still pounds and pounds of candy all over the place! What to do?

Our military men and women deployed around the world always enjoy candy in their care packages, and this is the perfect time of year for shipping chocolate–the cooler weather means it’s less likely to melt! Patriotic kids and parents can send extra Halloween candy to Soldiers’ Angels, who will make sure it brightens the day of a service member far from home.

Soldiers’ Angels asks all Angels to spread the word and get their community involved in sharing their Halloween candy to give our troops a taste of home.

If you live east of the Mississippi, please ship your Halloween candy to:

Soldiers’ Angels
112 Greenhill Road
Ramseur NC 27316

(Dropoff avail. M-F, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.)

If you live west of the Mississippi, please ship your Halloween candy to:

Soldiers’ Angels
914 Tourmaline Dr
Newbury Park, CA 91320

Isn’t that a great idea to help our troops?! Even if you gave away all your candy, your kids may want to share theirs or, you may want to got get some that is marked down after Halloween is over to share. Whatever way you choose, it is a great idea!

Reminder: Project Valour IT is still going on (through November 11). Many of our military who are wounded receive comfort by way of technology.
