Halloween Candy Give Back

Date: Tuesday, Nov. 6th & Wednesday, Nov. 7th

Time: 4:00 - 6:00pm

Location: Clinton Parkway Hy-Vee and 6th Street Hy-Vee

Help us make our Service Men and Women smile!

Your Lawrence Hy-Vee stores are teaming up with Growing Smiles, UPS, and Operation Gratitude to share Halloween fun with our troops overseas. Save a few of your favorite treats and then bring the rest of your Halloween candy stash to either of your Lawrence Hy-Vee stores. While we weigh your candy, you can make a fun card to send to the troops.

Each child donating their stash will receive coupons for healthy snacks and a chance to win a pair of KU tickets!

How many pounds of candy do you think we can collect?!

All candy collected will be shipped to our troops in personalized care packages via Operation Gratitude.

Why give? Halloween candy represents a warm memory of life “back home” and children that care enough to donate candy in support of our troops. Those troops are risking their lives every day. If a little piece of candy can provide a moment of happiness, why not?
