KCC Thanks You for Your Candy Donations!

11/20/2023 9:00 am

Thank you Oak community for your generous candy donations! Kids Care Club was blown away by the response to our first Halloween Candy Collection. We collected 238.6 pounds of candy! We dropped most of that candy off at Trane Technologies in Willowbrook who is working with "Soldiers' Angels Treats for Troops" and will mail that candy to deployed U.S. Troops. KCC students also made bookmarks to send, along with 10lbs of the collected candy, to a deployed Air Force Unit. Again, thank you all for your generosity! Because of its success, KCC plans to make this candy collection an annual event!
