There have been so many news articles about the supply chain for the holidays creating delays or lack of holiday items like presents. This doesn’t need to worry anyone – we can choose to spend our time and resources in other ways. Maybe even giving back to others while spending time with your family members. As a military family, the military community is always on our minds. We want to take care of our military family, in any way we can. If you are looking for a way to serve the all volunteer military forces and veterans look no further than these resources.
Treats for Troops, the organization run by Soldier’s Angels, collects candy from local businesses that participate in a buyback candy program. Look at your dentist or doctor’s office to see if they are participating – drop off candy by their drop off date and they will send it onto Treats for Troops! Treats for Troops looks for candy through the rest of the year to send off candy to troops overseas and serving locally.
They even take candy bags! Gather the family to make bags. I even made it a homeschool activity – the kindergartner sorted the candy and counted them into bags. We worked on multiplication but grouping the candy. Once the candy bags are completed, send them to:
