Operation Candy for Troops

NJROTC is again setting up troop units to receive shipments of Halloween candy. NJROTC collects the leftover candy from the REA Trick or Treat Night. NJROTC boxes the candy and will have the cadets put notes and cards in the boxes for the service members.  East Vincent Elementary School has collected spare candy for troops for a couple of years (last year collecting 22 pounds). They appeal to families to send in any extra candy they won't be using. They will be working with NJROTC to get the candy placed out to troops. Their students will also work on writing notes to troops. Cadets will package and ship the candy out to various locations. When received, the troops will see that it is a joined effort with East Coventry Elementary students and the high school NJROTC cadets.
