If you’re concerned about the calories of those fun-size bars adding up, or just tired of your little ghosts and ghouls bouncing off the walls in a sugar rush, check out the organizations below which will gladly accept candy donations — for a good cause!

Where to donate Halloween candy

1. Treats for Troops

Run by Soldier’s Angels, this program allows you to send sweets to military service members. Kids can earn buyback prizes, and you can get a tax deductible receipt for your donation.

2. Halloween Candy Buy Back

This group partners with businesses such as dentists offices to get extra candy out of the hands of your little ones in exchange for healthy items such as toothbrushes, hygiene kits and coupons. Use the zip code search to find a buyback location in your area.

3. Operation Gratitude

You may be tired of those treats, but deployed troops and first responders will be touched that you sent them your sweets while they are working hard, far away from home. Because of the amount of candy received from donations, as well as corporate donors, Operation Gratitude requests candy donation inquiries be sent to: candy@operationgratitude.com.
