(Oakland County Sheriff’s Department, Nov. 2, 2014)

For parents looking for an alternative to their children consuming excessive amounts of candy at Halloween while engaging in a service project with their children, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is accepting Halloween candy as part of its 5th annual “Treats for Troops” effort to send thanks, encouragement, and sweets to our troops overseas. Sheriff Bouchard also encourages parents and children wishing to participate to include notes (thank you, holiday, etc.) to the troops with the donation. “Treats for Troops is a great way parents can participate in a community service chazzano game adproject with their kids while showing our troops we support them back home,” said Sheriff Bouchard.

Halloween candy (individually wrapped, no chocolate please) may be dropped off at any of the Sheriff’s Office substations listed below. Schools wishing to do candy collection with students may do so. Please designate one volunteer to bring collected candy to Sheriff’s Headquarters in Pontiac no later than Wednesday, November 5th at 4pm.
