What do you do after Halloween has come and gone, the costumes are put away, the kids have come down from their sugar high, and the jack-o-lantern is starting to wilt... and there are still pounds and pounds of candy all over the place?
Send it to the troops, of course!
Our military men and women deployed around the world always enjoy candy in their care packages, and this is the perfect time of year for shipping chocolate--the cooler weather means it's less likely to melt!
Patriotic kids and parents can send extra Halloween candy to Soldiers' Angels, who will make sure it brightens the day of a service member far from home (please be sure to send "the good stuff,"--no crushed/melted candy or broken/torn wrappers, etc). stores also offer big discounts on their extra Halloween candy after the 31st.
To send your candy to the troops:
