31 Oct Halloween Candy Giveback
We’ve figured out it’s the chase that’s more fun than the conquest when it comes to Halloween Candy. Three years ago, DSU asked the unthinkable. Donate your Halloween Candy the day after Halloween.
Now three Halloweens strong, DSU has donated over 1200lbs of candy to Cape Cod Cares for our Troops for Holiday care packages for American soldiers serving in Afghanistan thanks to the Duxbury community!
This year, on Saturday November 1st, everyone in Bourne, MA was singing Duxbury’s praises when 543 pounds of candy rolled in accompanied by tons of letters of Holiday wishes written by DSU students – It was like Santa’s sleigh had arrived just for the Troops. All that candy kept over 30 volunteers busy packing candy into sandwich bags for 1500 troops in Afghanistan all afternoon long. The operation that Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops takes on each year, with hundreds of volunteers all working together to bring a little piece of joy to servicemen and women serving overseas, is truly awe inspiring for Duxbury students. We can’t wait to do it again next year!
