The Angell family of Davidson reminds us that this Halloween will be the seventh year to collect candy donations after Trick o’ Treating for our troops overseas.
Collections dates are Nov. 1-9 and drop off bins are located in Ben & Jerry’s, Ace Hardware, Lake Norman YMCA, the Community School of Davidson and Kadi Fit. All types of candy, including chocolate, will be accepted and all making donations are encouraged to include a note, card, drawing or personalized message for service members. Charlotte USO is responsible for getting the “treats” to the troops.
Back in 2006 when Mom Dani Angell and children, Zac and Kara, started small by asking friends to donate candy to send to Dad Mike Angell who was deployed overseas. Although Mike has since retired from the military after 21 years of service, the family continues the tradition – knowing how grateful the troops are.
