Places To Donate Your Halloween Candy

Halloween Candy Donation

We made it through Halloween y’all! Now what to do with ALL.THAT.HALLOWEEN.CANDY!?

We are going to start the new tradition of the Switch Witch (I just ordered the book today – oops already behind.) Think of Elf on a Shelf Halloween version. Unfortunately, I just heard about this fun tradition so our little witch didn’t move around the house like she was supposed to; but hey we are going to just improvise this year. We are donating our candy to some of our teacher friends for their students. I put together a quick list of other places you can donate your candy to. Don’t forget to contact the business you select to donate your candy to. I recommend you ask if they are still accepting candy (some buy backs set goals that they might have already reached) or if they have any specific requirements to accept your candy.

Are you a business taking candy? Comment below to be added to the listing.

DO’s & DON’Ts via Operation Gratitude Blog

DO’s:

  • DO ship your candy NO LATER THAN November 15 to:
    Operation Gratitude
    21100 Lassen Street
    Chatsworth, CA 91311
    Attn: Angel Cuevas/Receiving (818)469-0448
  • DO line your boxes with big bags to safely ship loose candy, or place the candy into zip-close bags.
  • DO include donations of individually-packaged toothbrushes, dental floss and toothpaste — we need to keep smiles on the troops’ faces all shiny, bright and healthy!
  • DO fill out the Donation Form and include the number of pounds of candy, number of toothbrushes, etc., you are shipping. This donation form is a downloadable PDF file, so even if you don’t see a window pop up, a file has been downloaded.
  • DO include a Donation Form in every box or carton you send to us and note the total number of packages you are sending to us on each form. 

DON’Ts: 

  • DON’T ship the candy to any other Operation Gratitude address than the Lassen Street address.
  • DON’T purchase candy for us at the 1/2-off sales after Halloween — just send us your extra/leftover candy and please consider making a financial donation instead.
  • DON’T use boxes any larger than 24″x 24″x 20,” please.
  • DON’T send Pixy Stix (or other powdery candy) – unfortunately, they make a mess of the Care Packages.
  • DON’T sort your candy. We want to make sure our Troops and First Responders get a variety of treats in each care package.We encourage everyone to write letters/cards to the troops that we can include with the candy in our care packages: Letter Writing Flyer
