Halloween Candy Giveback
starts November 1st.
Every year the Duxbury Student Union does the unthinkable asking children and adults to give up their unwanted candy to Cape Cod Cares for Troops to send to servicemen and women overseas. Duxbury has responded in very generous ways, parting with over 1200 pounds of candy annually. Bring your unwanted wrapped candy to DSU (12noon-6:00pm), Orangetheory Fitness, Kingston or the Kingsbury Club any day November 1st through November 20th.
Thanksgiving weekend, DSU staff and volunteers, including high school students, pack up their vehicles with box loads of candy and drive to Hyannis to Cape Cod Cares for the Troops where volunteers assist in packing 1500 care packages. Check out their website, you may even recognize Duxbury students on their home page!
The Cape Cod Cares for Troops event is so well organized and so inspiring. You will meet veterans, active service members and military families and hear about their family members deployed overseas. It’s an hour drive to Hyannis but well worth it as it’s a great way to kick off a holiday tradition with your family and fill your hearts with gratitude.
