Now that Halloween has come and gone, we are overwhelmed with candy! I know that if it stays here, we'll eat it. And that's not good. It's not like anyone else needs more candy...
Or do they?
If you find a lot of candy hanging out at your house as you recover from your candy coma - consider donating it to Operation Gratitude. They will accept donations of left-over candy to send to the troops.
They also would love letters, other items for care packages (there is a list on their website), and donations. It costs $10 a package to send to the troops. Perhaps this would be a great family project as we head into the next holiday season and remind ourselves and our children why we have soooo much to be thankful for!
