Treats for Troops Collection Site Information
Registration to collect candy is now closed!
Before you register to become a Soldiers’ Angels Treats for Troops collection site, we have some important information for you to review.
New for this year!
We are in the process of transitioning to a new database! Once approved to participate in this program, a Soldiers’ Angels staff member will manually create an online profile for you in the volunteer portal. The log-in information will be emailed to you. Once logged into that system, and after your collection drive is complete, you will be able to see VA sites, guard/reserve units, deployed service members and active-duty installations that wish to receive candy, including the weight of candy they would like to receive. You will be able to select specific sites you want to support! You will then ship or deliver your candy to that location directly!
You are responsible for the cost of transporting or shipping to get the candy to your designated Soldiers’ Angels candy recipient.
- You must ship your candy or coordinate with the recipient to deliver to the address you choose from the Soldiers’ Angels database.
- If you collect more candy than you can afford to ship, it is your responsibility to stop your collection early. You must let us know if you stop your collection early so that we can adjust your end date and remove your location from the live location map. While we do allow delivery, we cannot guarantee there will be a location near you to deliver to or they can accept delivery so please do not sign up unless you are prepared to ship your candy and cover the shipping costs.
You are responsible for providing your own buyback prizes.
- Common buyback prizes include toothbrushes and toothpaste, healthy snacks, coloring books and crayons, stickers, or cash. You are welcome to get creative and come up with other great prizes for the participating children.
- Buyback prizes are not mandatory for collection sites— but it is a fun way to encourage kiddos in your community to participate.
Please Note: Candy collected in the name of Soldiers’ Angels must be donated to Soldiers’ Angels, not to any other group or organization.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to read through all of the Treats for Troops Frequently Asked Questions before continuing to the next step. It will help you have a successful collection!
