Vail Mountain School third-grader collecting candy for deployed military
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. Libbie, 8, said 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 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 Tuesday, Oct. 31.
The proposed deal would be a three-way agreement between the town, the developer and the Eagle River Water and Sanitation District.
