The Halloween Candy Drive is a weeklong initiative aimed to teach children the power of giving through items that are truly valuable to children of all ages: their Halloween Candy! Children may not understand the value of a dollar or quarter, but they understand the excitement of receiving candy. This drive encourages children to donate some of these treasures to help sick kids. In the process, The B Fund contributes *$.25 to local hospitals for each piece of candy donated from a child’s personal stash. *(Up to $25,000.)
Once collected, volunteers inspect, sort and place the candy into bags that are customized with a personalized note of encouragement and/or thanks. These delicious treasures are then delivered to the staff and family members who are caring for these children.
