Leftover Halloween Candy Drive
- Denise Knapp, Washington Elementary School
- Community Involvement, Student Leadership
On Veteran’s Day, our Healthy Communities leadership team joined with our community service group and held a leftover candy drive. This first annual event was a huge success. We managed to collect over 100 lbs. of candy. This was then taken to the local American Legion. Students distributed the candy to Veterans with our thanks for their service, and the remainder will be shipped overseas to be given to our troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.
