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 looks GREAT!


    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!!!
