17,700 kids donated their Halloween candy last Sunday for the Troops

Last Sunday, our restaurants hosted an event to snap kids our of their ‘Candy Comas.’  17,700 kids 12 and under chipped in and helped out giving up their Halloween candy and donating it to Operation Gratitude. Together, we collected more than 10,000 lbs of candy.

Operation Gratitude sends care packages addressed to individual deployed Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines. Read thank you letters written by troops for your donations here.

We have already shipped the first batch to Operation Gratitude. Thank you to everyone who participated! The troops will love the goodies!
