Halloween is such a fun and tricky time of year…with all that candy, everyone should indulge but too much is never a good idea…here are 5 sweet ways to donate Halloween treats.
Participants buy back kids’ Halloween candy at a scheduled event with cash, xylitol products, coupons, toothbrushes, creative exchanges, hygiene kits or coupons for their office as well! To find a participating buyback in your area, use the ZIP code search at the top of their main home page to find an event in your area. Contact the participant to find out the date, time, and details of their event.
Through the Soldiers’ Angels Treats for Troops Halloween Candy drive, businesses can register to serve as a collection site for this program. Not only will you be serving the community by removing excess candy from the mouths of children, but also serving our service members, wounded heroes, and veterans.
