He's done it again!! Sixth Annual Halloween Candy Buyback for the Troops overseas on Monday, November 3, 2014 from 3-5PM
On the 3rd of November 2014, we had almost 250 children from the
community bring in their excess Halloween candy for the sixth year in a
row. We shut the office down early and opened up to buy candy back
from the kids to send to the troops. We paid them a dollar per pound of
candy and gave out free toothbrushes, coupons to Jose's, and Pizza
Chalet for free kids meals.
The kids wrote letters and colored pictures for the troops. The
amazing thing about our community is that we continue to receive candy
donations for several more weeks after the actual event. Almost three
hundred pounds of candy was collected for the troops overseas. We had
several repeat visits from kids that have done this each year. One
little girl donated almost 22lbs!!! WOWEE!! One of our very own
Makeover winners brought her three little guys. I guess she worked to
hard to put the weight back on with Halloween candy hanging around. She
We want to thank everyone for participating and giving up their
candy to support our soldiers overseas. We collected the candy as part
of Operation Gratitude and we are going to be holding this event every
year until all of the troops come home.
We are doing it again next year if
your children want to donate their candy to the troops as part of Operation Gratitude.
We will weigh the candy and pay your child $1.00 per pound of candy (up
to 600 pounds total donations). On Monday, November 2nd, come between 3:00-5:00pm to 34675
Yucaipa Blvd., Suite #103 to participate in this fun event. Call for more info if needed. (909)790-4537. See you then!!!
