Candy for A Cause: Halloween Candy GIVE-Back Program at Saint Stephen of Hungary School
Taking candy from children is usually frowned upon, but teaching kids the value of giving back by donating their excess Halloween candy in support of U.S. Troops and First Responders is a win-win for everyone.
This Halloween, Saint Stephen of Hungary students sorted through their candy, brought it to the school and helped pack it up to send to our Troops. Over XX boxes of Halloween candy with hand-written letters of gratitude was shipped to Operation Gratitude to distribute through its' Care Package Programs.
In 2016, 533,891 pounds of candy was sent to Operation Gratitude for distribution through its Care Package Programs. We are proud to be part of this effort and teach our children the importance of giving and saying "Thank You" to all of those who serve our country.
