The following is a release from Treats for Our Troops:
Too much candy after Halloween? Buy more then you needed?
Don’t let it go to waste or waist! Donate your extra candy to our troops overseas.
Treats for our Troops is collecting candy once again for our troops overseas. Last year we sent 3000 lbs of candy to troops stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq and hope to send even more this year. You may even want to pick up an extra bag or two at the store. Please drop off your extra candy at one of the collection sites listed below and send a little Halloween spirit to our troops overseas! Look for the orange box with the Treats for our Troops sign on it.
Boxes are located in the Killiam Elementary School, Reading; Burlington Public Library; St. Margaret’s Church; The Used Book Store; Burlington Elementary Schools (Memorial, Pine Glen, Francis Wyman, and Fox Hill); Billerica Elementary Schools (Dutile & Ditson); Winchester Schools; the Shamrock Elementary School, Woburn; Lutheran Church, Woburn; Stop & Shop, Woburn; Winchester Hospital (various locations) and Profitness Plus gym (Billerica).
If you would like a collection box in your location or school, or if you have a loved one overseas who you would like to add to our recipient list, please contact Caroline Mallard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
