I know there are a lot of kids with left over or unwanted Halloween candy out there, so why not turn it into some cash and benefit our service men and women! Bring in your candy to my office and I will pay you $1.50 per pound and then I will donate it to America’s Moms for Soldiers to send to our troops. Our Halloween Candy Buyback will only run through Thursday, so don’t delay. I will also be giving out toys and hygiene goodies to kids that donate!
