Treats For Troops Will Take Your Leftover Halloween Candy and Share It With Our Soldiers.
Imagine being thousands of miles from home in Afghanistan or some other remote region of the world, away from family and friends. This is the reality facing our men and women overseas. Many of them have not had a piece of candy in MONTHS! By donating just half of your child’s Halloween candy, or your leftover give-away candy, or even picking up an extra bag at the store, you can bring a taste of home to our homesick troops.
Packages for Patriots will collect, package and ship your donations to our troops overseas. Over the past 5 years this group has sent 7,500 care packages totaling over 44 TONS to the men and women in our military. This year their goal is 5,000 lbs of candy at Halloween.
YOU CAN HELP by bringing your candy to the dealership in the days following Halloween. We will collect it and get it to Packages for Patriots. As you can see from these pictures, it’s a pretty exciting day when these packages reach their destinations. If you have any questions, contact your business manager. Share your sweets with our soldiers. Let them know how much we appreciate their sacrifices.
