Got Leftover Halloween Candy? DONATE it to the Troops!

The problem is Halloween candy. There’s too much sugary temptation around the house once trick or treaters finish their rounds. It’s either eat it, toss it or take it to work. If you were wondering what else could you do with it, here is an idea – DONATE it to the troops!

Scrub City, an Everett store that sells apparel for medical workers, is collecting candy for Operation Gratitude. The nonprofit group sends care packages to members of the U.S. military and veterans. Candy will be included in holiday packages being sent overseas.

Last year, Scrub City provided more than 150 pounds of candy, letter and drawings for the cause. Donations of candy, letters and drawings are needed by Nov. 16. Scrub City is at 7430 Evergreen Way, Suite 102, Everett. It’s open 10 a.m.-7 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
