This is the image for the news article titled Staacey S2S Candy Buy-BackOn Wednesday, November 1- Thursday, November 3 the club s2s (student to student) hosted a “Candy Buy Back.” In this event, elementary students had the opportunity to bring in bags of their Halloween candy and exchange them for healthy snacks. From there, s2s gathered the candy and shipped it to Operation Gratitude, which then distributed it to troops overseas. The s2s club would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. John Dekoch DDS and Dr. Annie R. Dekoch DDS for paying all the shipping costs of sending the candy. We would also like to thank the PTSO for assisting s2s in making this event possible. I worked one of the shifts at the elementary school to collect the candy and the kids were so excited to trade their Halloween candy for healthy snacks. It was such a surprise but also a success! During my shift, I watched as the candy piled high and was almost overflowing out of the container we brought. Overall, s2s received 142 pounds of candy. Thank you to everyone that helped and we hope to do this event again next year!
