The Depew Middle School National Junior Honor Society organized candy donations for the troops serving overseas. The members donated 153 pounds of candy to Winning Smiles Pediatric Dentistry. The candy will then be shipped to Packs4Patriots, and organization in North Carolina, that assembles care packages and ships the candy to troops deployed overseas.
Receiving the care packages is a real treat for the troops as it contains items ranging from standard necessities to surprises such as candy. Care packages typically include hygiene products, socks, shirts, protein bars and snack food, ground coffee, cards letters from children and Halloween goodies.
