Candy collection for troops

October 31, 2012

Extra candy from Halloween? Donate it to Treats for Troops, 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Thursday and Friday, November 1-2, at Independence Township Substation, 6560 Citation Drive.

Oakland County Sheriff's Office will send the treats, along with thank-you, holiday, and other notes, to troops overseas.

"Treats for Troops is a great way parents can participate in a community service project with their kids while showing our troops we support them back home," said Sheriff Michael Bouchard.

Halloween candy must be individually wrapped no chocolate. There will be a drop box in the lobby.

Operation Care Package Michigan will assist with the shipping portion of the project.

Also taking part in the candy collection are substations in Brandon Township, Commerce Township, Highland Township, Orion Township, Oxford Township, and Rochester Hills, as well as headquarters in Pontiac.
