Some trick-or-treaters are starting Thanksgiving and Christmas early.
Children are experiencing the joy of giving back to those who are fighting for their country.
Dentist offices and other local businesses across the country are collecting candy for a program that sends care packages to US troops and their families. Some of these offices are also collecting winter items, such as mittens and scarves.
If you're overwhelmed by your child's Halloween haul, donating a handful of sweets is one of the (healthy) ways you can get rid of the candy and do something sweet for our brave soldiers.
That being said, how much would kids make donating their candy and what would it achieve?
