Where to donate Halloween candy

candyYour waistline, your children’s teeth and your children’s teachers will thank you. Here’s where you can donate that excess Halloween candy,

*Operation Gratitude sends care packages to U.S. troops overseas. You just pay to ship to California, but an extra $11 donation covers overseas postage.

*Any Soldier and Operation Shoebox will also let you donate candy.

*Ronald McDonald House Charities accepts candy donation for kids. Search for a local branch here.

If anyone knows of any local shops, food pantries, pediatric wards, nursing homes, churches or synagogues that have candy drop-offs, please comment below or on our SouthernMamas Facebook page here. Also, anyone have any tips on ‘encouraging’ kids to donate their candy?
