Do you have a lot of leftover Halloween candy? We sure do, so my wife (@NatalieDiScala) researched where we could donate it. She found a great organization called Operation Gratitude, which sends donated sweet treats to veterans, first responders and deployed troops. All candy needs to be donated by November 9 to be a part of the upcoming campaign, but Operation Gratitude makes it easy to do that, with dropoff locations all around the U.S. (the team recommends getting in touch before you go to drop off to learn more about hours and dropoff guidelines).
Additional items, including thank you letters and travel toothpaste, can be shipped directly to Operation Gratitude using the shipping guidelines on the website. More information, including dos and don’ts to consider before sending candy and other goods, is here.
