Great Causes to Donate Extra Candy To
After last night you are probably going to have more candy around than you could (or should) eat. Instead of letting it go to waste, why not donate it to a good cause?
Here are some great organizations that will take your extra candy:
Treats for Troops: Sending candy to deployed soldiers is awesome on its own, but you’ll also get a receipt for tax purposes and your kids can earn buyback prizes for collecting candy.
Operation Gratitude: This organization not only sends candy to deployed soldiers but also to first-responders far from home.
Ronald McDonald House Charities: You can donate your candy to sick children and their families who couldn’t celebrate the holiday.
Your Local Homeless Shelter: Oftentimes kids who are in shelters don’t get to trick-or-treat, so your donated candy will be greatly appreciated. Contact your local church or shelter for more details.
