Too Much Candy? Donate It to Charity

Drop off your excess candy on Nov. 1 and Nov. 2 to be donated to soldiers and local community programs.

 

Are you looking at this year's Halloween candy, thinking, "What will we do with all this candy?" 

The Medfield Angels/Neighbor Brigade network has the answer: Donate it to community programs and soldier cheer boxes.

The Angels will be collecting leftover Halloween candy again this year on Thursday and Friday.

All candy -- loose or bagged -- is welcome.

"We will be giving the unopened bags to Medfield Youth Outreach. They will use this candy for their different programs," said Laurie Nealon who, along with Kathleen Cahill, coordinates the program.   

"We will be giving the rest to the United Church of Christ for making cheer boxes for soldiers and also Operation American Soldier. Both of these organizations will be sending the candy to our troops overseas," she said.

Unwanted candy can be dropped off on Thursday, Nov. 1 or Friday, Nov. 2 at Laurie Nealon's house (7 Copperwood) or Kathleen Cahill's house (7 Penobscot).

The Medfield Angels/Neighbor Brigade collected over 400 pounds of Halloween candy which will be distributed to Medfield Youth Outreach, as well as the United Church of Christ and Operation American Soldier to be sent to our soldiers overseas. Nice job, Medfield!
