The kids have had their fill, and there’s still lots of candy left over! What do you do? Here are a couple of sweet places where you can donate your extra treats.

Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude is a 501{c}{3} sending care packages to US military serving overseas. You can donate your leftover Halloween candy to help fill care packages for the fall. Check out the website for the California based non-profit organization HERE.
