Get rid of that candy!

Looking for something to do with that leftover candy? Whether you tricked (;)), pharmacy treated or boo-ed your way through last night, approved chances are you have some leftover sweet stuff mocking you around the house. I am writing this at 3:56pm and my kids are pretty much already at each others throats and that is just the tip of the iceberg that is floating our way tonight. My words of advice to both them and YOU is that you don’t have to consume it all in a four hour period. In fact if kept properly it can last up to 2 years. Fun fact: candy corn is surprisingly less – 6 month-ish.¬†
If you can’t moderate your candy consumption, buy more about you could donate it to Operation¬†Shoebox. That link takes you to the address where you can send leftover candy. Founded in 2003, Operation Shoebox has been sending care packages to our troops all around the world. These packages contain food, magazines, toiletries, but the most important of all are the handwritten letters to our soldiers. CrossFit Oakdale will be sponsoring a troop and is looking for your support. Requirements are 1 handwritten letter a week and a monthly care package. Please let Alison know if you are interested in helping out. This is a great opportunity to get your kids involved too!
Happy Halloween!
