Need something to do with all that Halloween candy? Send it to a soldier

The Halloween candy is coming. Soon your house will be filled with it. Do your kids really need it all?

Many dentists and orthodontists offices “buy” back their patient’s candy, but you also can donate candy to be sent to people serving in our armed forces.

Soldiers’ Angels, a nonprofit organization based in San Antonio, has a program for businesses to collect leftover Halloween candy and send it to troops.

When this orange plastic pumpkin is more like five or six pumpkins, send your candy to a soldier.

You can find out which businesses are participating close to you at SoldiersAngels.org/TreatsforTroops as well as sign up your business to collect candy and send it. This year, Soldiers’ Angels wants to collect 17,000 pounds of candy.

When we searched the site we found two local businesses to send our candy, but we’re sure there will be more as we get closer to Halloween.
