Candy for the Troops

Tommy's scout pack collected halloween candy this year to donate to a nonprofit organization that sends care packages to U.S. troops on deployment. Tommy, Nic, and Kenny each set aside a large portion of their trick-or-treat haul to send to the troops, and we were able to collect even more candy from friends at church and Amy's bible study. All together the scouts collected quite an impressive load of candy, as you can see below. Tommy and I went with a few other scouts to drop off the candy we collected - and to tour the care package operation. While we were there, the kids got to put together some Christmas care packages for the soldiers. Tommy really enjoyed getting to put together a care package. Thank you to everyone who donated candy to this project! And thank you to all the soldiers spending the holidays away from their families.
