Donate Your Leftover Halloween Candy!

Looking for something to do with all of those Halloween treats? YCS will take your unwanted candy and donate it to good causes, like Operation Gratitude which sends care packages to US Troops, Veterans, Wounded Warriors and Military Children. What a “sweet” way for kids to help others! All donations can be placed in the blue bins found in the lobbies, and the last day to donate is Friday, November 10th.
