It is November 1st so that means it is time to start talking turkey! I am going to put away all of the Halloween decorations today. The kids have gone through all of their candy, picked their favorites, and traded the ones that they wanted to give away. However, between the Downtown Trick or Treat, trick or treating around the neighborhood, treats from friends, school and more, we are innundated with candy. There is no way we could possibly eat all of this nor should we! What do you do with your leftover Halloween candy?
Check with your children’s school. The teachers sometimes use treats as rewards or during parties.
Take it to a dentist or orthodontist participating in the Halloween Candy Buyback Programs. Bring your unopened candy to Shehee and Callahan (1007 Airport Blvd) from November 1 to the 4th. Everyone who donates candy will receive a free firefly light-up toothbrush and goody bag. Everyone who donates at least a pound of candy will earn a chance to win prizes. The candy will be donated to the local USO and will benefit local military.
Donate to Operation Shoebox. They will go through the candy and ship it to the troops. According to their website, their mailing address is: Operation Shoebox; 8360 E Highway 25; Belleview, FL 34420.
Do you know of any other locations that are accepting extra Halloween candy?
