Halloween may continue to look a little different this year, but you can count on Operation Gratitude’s commitment to providing opportunities for communities to give back to those who serve our nation.

The Halloween Candy Give Back Program has been connecting communities with their Military, Veteran, and First Responder Heroes each fall since 2007. Volunteers from all 50 states and Washington D.C. share a portion of their excess Halloween candy with Operation Gratitude. We then assist in distributing the candy to deployed troops, local military units, veterans, and first responders, providing a sweet opportunity for grateful Americans to thank those who serve our nation.

Thank you so much to all of our Halloween Candy Give Back participants, we are so grateful for your support! For those who were not able to participate this year, you can still help us give candy to our heroes through a candy care package sponsorship. A donation of $15 will help us send one care package to a service member.

For questions please contact Michelle Pryor at Candy@operationgratitude.com.


Even if you are not collecting candy this year you can still be a part of the 2021 Halloween Candy Give Back Program by making a financial donation to support shipping!

Help us reach our goal of $15,000!
