Here's How to Donate Your Leftover Candy to a Good Cause
Put that Halloween haul to good use.
It happens every year: You’re afraid of disappointing adorable children, so you buy Halloween goodies in bulk. Without fail, one or two trick-or-treaters trickle by your house and you’re left with 100 pieces of tempting-but-bad-for-you candy.
Don’t stuff your face just yet! Operation Gratitude will use those excess treats to brighten the days of American troops, their families, veterans, and first responders.

Since its founding in 2003, the organization has delivered more than 2.1 million care packages to heroes serving overseas and at home.
Operation Gratitude’s Halloween Candy Give-Back Program is a major source of the sweet treats included in every package.
