Canyon Lake resident Sabrina Alt raised $350 through a GoFundMe campaign to purchase Halloween candy for deployed troops.

On Monday, Alt delivered 93 pounds of candy to Pack, Wrap, & Post in the Canyon Lake Towne Center. The local post office serves as a drop-off location for Operation Gratitude’s Halloween Candy Give-Back Program.

Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit organization focused on giving back to military and public service personnel, will be delivering the candy in care packages to deployed troops and through local deliveries to first responders and veterans.

The Halloween Candy Give-Back Program runs through October 31. Residents interested in participating in the program may drop off candy donations at Pack Wrap & Post, 31566 Railroad Canyon Rd., Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Donated candy must be individually wrapped, bite-sized or smaller, and factory sealed. Unwrapped candy, full-sized candy, homemade items, powdered candy such as Pixy Stix and Fun Dip, and loose candy such as a one-pound bag of candy corn will not be accepted.

“Thank you to everyone who donated to share a little bit of Halloween at home with the troops abroad,” said Alt.
