Halloween Candy Buy Back SUCCESS!

On November 1-3 we held our second annual Halloween Candy Buy Back event, to benefit Operation Gratitude. WOW, what a success it was! Last year we collected just over 300 pounds of candy to send to the troops. This year, due to the kindness and generosity of our community we collected more than 535 pounds of candy and 90 cards and letters to send to our troops! Due to the overwhelming response to our Candy Buy Back we extended the event an extra day, and were overwhelmed by the positive response.

CUTENESS ALERT: Here are some of the adorable smiling faces that we saw during the Buy Back event!

Look at all of the letters and cards that we got to send along with the candy! Vandergriff kindergarteners even made cards and letters in class, and brought them to us. The troops are going to love them!

Congratulations to Aubrey, Lauren and Evan for winning the drawing for prizes!

Thank you ALL for your support of this project, and for helping us let our troops know how much we appreciate their service!
