Halloween is over and I know you have tons of candy, like seriously, way more than you need. You can use some of that candy to make a difference. Send it to our troops stationed overseas. They didn't get to celebrate Halloween at home this year, and opening a care package with your Halloween candy would really cheer them up. Plus they might share some of the candy with kids in Iraq and Afghanistan, spreading the love all over the world!
Here's what you do. Pack up your extra Halloween candy in a box and mail it to the address below by December 5. Operation Gratitude will make up individual care packages and send them to U.S. troops. While you're at it, why not write a nice letter and include it with your candy? A simple "Thanks for all you do!" would make the package that much sweeter for a serviceman or woman.
Send your boxes full of candy and your letters to:
Operation Gratitude/California Army National Guard
17330 Victory Boulevard
Van Nuys, California 91406
ATTN: Rich Hernandez
Print out and include this donor sheet inside your package.
