MARQUETTE — Every year, millions of pounds of candy end up in the trash after Halloween.

From over-buying to kids collecting more than they can eat while trick-or-treating, candy is wasted across the country.

This year, Flourish Financial Partners is participating in a program that will help our community produce less waste after Halloween while also showing support for service members and veterans.

Soldiers’ Angels, a national 501(c)3 nonprofit, hosts an annual collection drive for excess Halloween candy. The organization ships the candy to deployed service members around the world for a sweet treat from home. They also utilize their “Angel” volunteers to distribute candy to veterans of all eras in VA Hospitals across the country.
