Jackson is collecting your leftover Halloween candy for Operation Shoebox: Deadline 11/16

Do you have left over candy from Halloween and want to get rid of it? Keene’s Crossing Elementary Operation Shoebox.jpgSecond Grade will be collecting for a great organization called Operation Shoebox. For those of you who haven’t heard of this wonderful organization please visit their website and check out the great things they do for our troops overseas.

If you have any leftover Hallloween candy, including chocolate (soldiers say they will lick the melted chocolate if they have to), please drop it by Jackson’s office in Orlando by November 16th. 

They also need other times that soldiers have listed on the site:operationshoebox2.jpg

  • Toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss
  • Travel size shampoo/conditioner, combs
  • Travel size body wash, foot powder, deodorant
  • Note cards, pens (any writing correspondence)
  • Travel size games
  • Powered drink mixes (coffee, tea, etc…), duct tape (keeps moisture out)

We’ll be delivering all of the donated items to Keene’s Crossing Elementary on 11/17 and they’ll send everything to Operation Shoebox.
