Extra Candy?

Do you have way too much candy at your house from all the fall festivities this season? If you find yourself unable to give away all of the candy you bought, or your kids have way too much, here are a few ways you can put it to good use.

These organizations will gladly accept your unwanted candy — for a good cause!

  1. Treats for Troops – This program allows you to send sweets to soldiers.
  2. Candy Buy Back  – This group partners with businesses such as dentists offices to get extra candy out of the hands of your little ones in exchange for healthy items such as toothbrushes, hygiene kits and coupons.
  3. Operation Gratitude – Deployed troops and first responders will be touched that you sent them your treats while they are working hard, far away from home. 
  4. Operation Shoebox (not to be confused with Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes!) This organization distributed candy on Halloween, Christmas and Easter to troops that are missing the festivities while away from home.
  5. Ronald McDonald House Charities – Call your local chapter to find out rules on bringing your unopened Halloween candy for severely sick children and their families to enjoy.
