Operation Gratitude Halloween Candy Give-Back

Read our blog post to learn about Operation Gratitude, a Halloween candy give-back campaign to honor our troops, veterans, and first responders!

Dr. James Raymond is participating in Operation Gratitude for Halloween this year. Operation Gratitude is a national program that helps individuals, organizations, and businesses donate goods to members of the military, wounded veterans, first responders, children of service members killed or missing in action, and the caregivers of veterans.

About Operation Gratitude

Candy donations from our Halloween GIVE-Back campaign will be sent to Operation Gratitude. The organization sends care packages with a handful of donated candy to troops who are currently deployed and other heroes who serve our country. According to Operation Gratitude, many donations come from dentists like Dr. Raymond who host GIVE-Back campaigns at their offices. Skyline Dental will be among many businesses gathering donations this year.

Operation Gratitude sends care packages throughout the year. In 2018, the organization sent more than 264,000 care packages. Since 2003, the same year Operation Iraqi Freedom began, Operation Gratitude has sent 2.4 million care packages across the globe!

How to Get Involved

Do you want to support our troops like Dr. Raymond? Drop off your leftover candy at our office before November 8th. You can also participate in Operation Gratitude this year by hosting your own GIVE-Back campaign. However, there are some guidelines that you must follow if you plan to host a donation drive. We encourage you to visit Operation Gratitude’s website to learn more about these guidelines.
