Deployed troops often miss parts of home that aren't available where they are, which can make them feel isolated.
Receiving packages with candy and other familiar essentials can help combat feelings of sadness and isolation.
Operation Gratitude is an organization that sends care packages to soldiers. Host a Halloween Candy Giveback Drive at school to help them fill packages with candy.
