Burlington, NC, November 2020 – Crisp & Associates is pleased and honored to support the Operation Gratitude program this year!  We have been proud supporters of this program for over 10 years and are thankful to be working with them again this year.

The Halloween Candy Give Back Program has been connecting communities with their Military, Veteran, and First Responder Heroes each fall since 2003. Volunteers from all 50 states and Washington D.C. share a portion of their excess Halloween candy with Operation Gratitude. We then assist in distributing the candy to deployed troops, local military units, veterans, and first responders, providing a sweet opportunity for grateful Americans to thank those who serve our nation.

The candy that we collect through the buyback program will be sent to our troops, military, veterans and first responders’ part of Operation Gratitude.  As part of this program, we also give the kids materials to write notes of encouragement, love, and thanks to the troops who will be receiving the candy.  Crisp & Associates uses this program to support our troops while aiding in the prevention of cavities and obesity in children in our local community. The troops love it, the kids love it, and so do we! 

Due to COVID-19, we are going to make our goal easy for you to provide candy to support the Troops program.  Crisp & Associates are very aware of the COVID spread and tries to keep all safe.

To participate:  Collect one pound of candy (or more!) and bring it to Crisp & Associates at any of our 3 locations below beginning November 1, 2021, through November 5, 2021.  We will have a tent set up in front of our office.  Just drive up to the tent, pop your trunk, we will gather all the candy you bring.  We will weigh the candy and give you or your child $1.00 a pound!  For more information about Crisp & Associates visit our website at www.smilesrfun.com.
