Vail Daily Town Talk: Treats for troops

Local Third-Grader Leads Halloween Candy Collection Drive to be Shiped to Service Members Around the World Here’s a great way to repurpose your extra Halloween candy. Libbie Stanton, a third-grader at Vail Mountain School, has again partnered with the town of Vail to collect unused candy for the Soldier’s Angels Treats for Troops program, which ships donated candy to deployed service members around the world. Stanton, 8, says the program is a great use of those sweets to remind our troops that they’re not forgotten. Drop-off locations will be available Wednesday, Nov. 1, through Sunday, Nov.12, at the following locations: the Welcome Centers in Lionshead and Vail villages, Vail Public Library and Vail Municipal Building. In addition, candy will be collected during the Trick-or-Treat Trot in Vail on Halloween. Thank you to Libbie for organizing this sweet way to honor our troops.
