2008 Candy for the Troops

by Press Release | Oct 29, 2008
2008 Candy for the Troops Help collect candy for the troops, by dropping off your collected (from trick-or-treating or store bought) candy at the office of Dr. Stephen Markus. Not only will this help out the troops, but it will help you keep your teeth healthy!

This year we seek to break our national record, set last year of 5600 pounds of Halloween candy collected. The troops use this candy to befriend local children, to promote democracy, and to gather information.

We would like the help of local school PTAs, athletic leagues, and businesses. We will be collecting candy on November 1, 3,4, and 5. We seek media sponsorship and cooperation. Call our office if you can help with donations.

Thanks to the help of NFI Freight, we will have a trailer, on site for collection. We also hope to have several US soldiers here to thank the kids. The candy will all be shipped to Keystone Soldiers, who last year incurred expenses of almost $10,000 to get the candy overseas. This year, we will be asking local businesses and individuals who care, to write a check as a donation to Keystone Soldiers. Information about this organization can be found, on the web, at www.keystonesoldiers.com.

This is a charity that runs on energy, not major corporate dollars.
