For years, Rodeo Realty’s Northridge agent, Wendy Dern, has been coordinating a candy collection for an organization called “For The Troops”, a 100% volunteer non-profit group that sends “We Care” packages to our troops over seas, year round. Over 2000 packages are sent every month, and contain basic personal essentials, playing cards, magazines, letters from volunteers, and so much more. Every box is packed, then filled with candy, not just as a fun treat, but to insure there is no movement in the package.
In previous years, Wendy has collected about 1000 lbs. of candy. As they increase the number of packages sent every month, the amount of candy needed increases too. According to Wendy, this year they ran out of candy in April! Therefore, this year she has set out to increase her collection goal to at least 2000 lbs. of candy!
Wendy will be collecting candy from October 18 – November 9.
If you would like to participate by donating candy, (leftover Halloween candy, candy purchased from post Halloween sales, excessive candy from your kids trick or treating, etc), please call, text, or email Wendy to make arrangements so that she can get your donation. Thanks for your support!!!
