HVPTO: Candy Collection & Letters for the Troops

HVPTO\'s Candy & Letter Drive - November 1-7, 2023
HVPTO: Candy Collection & Letters for the Troops

Once again, our HVPTO will be collecting candy and letters for our troops from November 1-7 for the 250th Expeditionary Military Intelligence Battalion and Operation Gratitude. They will include the candy and letters in care packages sent to deployed troops, veterans, new recruits, and first responders. Candy will also be distributed to the Ronald McDonald House.

If your child doesn't have an opportunity to write a letter at school, please encourage them to write one at home. We also welcome letters from family members. Please be sure to review Operation Gratitude's letter writing tips HERE before writing your letter.

Candy collection boxes will be outside each school's office. Please drop off candy in Ziploc style bags. If it gets really warm, the box may be moved just inside each office so the candy doesn't melt.

Letters can be placed in the RED letter collection tray in each school office marked "Letters for the Troops" between November 1-9. No envelopes please.

Questions: Please contact Rachel Burger, Taya Boughton, or Christy Trotter
