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 U. S. 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 local kids where they are stationed, spreading the love all over the world!
Here’s what to do:
- Check with your parents first to make sure it’s ok.
- Pack up your extra Halloween candy in a box.
- Mail it to one of the addresses below (whichever is closer to where you live) by December 5.
Operation Gratitude/California Army National Guard
17330 Victory Boulevard
Van Nuys, California 91406
ATTN: Rich Hernandez
Six Months of Christmas
5068 US HWY 64 East
Franklinville, NC 27248
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. But remember, never give your personal information to a stranger – no last names, addresses, or phone numbers!
