Have extra Halloween candy? Here’s how you can get it to the troops

MADISON (WKOW) – When the ghosts and goblins have rung their last doorbell, it’s time to bring your excess candy to UnityPoint Health – Meriter’s annual Halloween candy drop off.

This year, rather than hosting a one-day event, Meriter is collecting candy at its West Washington clinic during normal weekday business hours (7 a.m. – 5 p.m.) Nov. 1-2 and Nov. 5-7. Children who donate their candy will get a goody bag and be entered to win the grand prize – A family four-pack to the Madison Children’s Museum.

All candy will be sent overseas to the U.S. Troops through Operation Gratitude.

Operation Gratitude is a non-profit organization that annually sends 100,000 care packages filled with snacks, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation. Any candy pieces donated to the event must be unopened.
