If your home has unwanted Halloween candy, you can donate it to deployed troops by mailing it before November 8. More information is here:

Some pediatric dentists also participate in this program, so you might be able to drop off unwanted candy at your kids’ dentist and they will take care of the postage to mail the donation. My kids’ dentist actually BUYS back my kids candy at $1.50 per pound! This really motivates my kids to be more generous with their donations!
