Halloween Candy Give-Back Program

The Halloween Candy Give-Back Program has been connecting communities with Military, Veteran and First Responder Heroes each fall since 2007. While Halloween may look a little different this year, Operation Gratitude and our incredible volunteers are committed to continuing to give back in meaningful ways.


Grateful Americans across the nation share a portion of their Halloween candy with Operation Gratitude, and we donate it to Deployed Troops, Local Military Units, Veterans, and First Responders with the goal of forging strong bonds between the civilian and service communities nationwide.

Whether you have participated in previous years, or this will be the first time, you are in for a real “treat”.

Visit one of two local elementary schools in Beavercreek who will be acting as ‘drop off sites’ for Operation Gratitude. Bring your candy in ziplock bags and place it in the marked bins Monday, November 2nd through Friday, November 6th.
