If you stopped by our office in October, you might have been tempted by some candy.
LOTS of candy.
In the spirit of Halloween, we packed our lunch bags with candy and distributed them at local events and activities. Thousands of Boston-area residents were able to participate in this “sweet” giveaway, and we ultimately handed out more than 50 pounds of candy!
Halloween is over now, but we still had some candy left in our office. Rather than become tempted to eat it all ourselves, we decided to donate it to Operation Gratitude, a fantastic non-profit organization that sends care packages to American troops abroad. Each box of food, hygiene products, and entertaining items is meant to show appreciation for all of their service and sacrifice. We’re excited to be working with this awesome organization; xtra xtra features announcements for military heroes, so we’re glad to support those who serve our country with bravery and honor.
We’ve packed up almost fifteen pounds of candy and sweets for the soldiers, and we’re about to head out to the post office. If you’d like to get involved with Operation Gratitude, take a look at their Wish List, or visit the site to find out how you can help support our heroes abroad.
Til next time,
