Hope you had a fun Halloween weekend! How much leftover candy did you end up with? For me…the answer is always “TOO MUCH!” I will eat it all if I don’t get rid of it ASAP! Thankfully, there are a lot of ways to give that leftover candy away! Here are a few places that will take your donation and use it to brighten someone’s day!

1. Treats for Troops

Run by Soldier’s Angels, this program allows you to send sweets to soldiers. Kids can earn buyback prizes, and you can get a tax-deductible receipt for your donation.

2. Halloween 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

This group sends your treats to deployed troops and first responders many of whom are working hard, far away from home. Last year, they received and distributed a record-breaking 533,891 pounds of candy!
