PONTIAC (WWJ) – For the fourth year in a row, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is collecting leftover Halloween candy which will be sent to troops working overseas.

Sheriff Mike Bouchard said the “Treats for Troops” program is an opportunity for parents to prevent their kids from consuming excessive amounts of candy while giving back to those who are tirelessly working to keep America safe.

Bouchard also encourages parents and children to include thank you or encouragement notes to the troops along with their donation.

Individually wrapped Halloween candy (no chocolate — it will melt!) may be dropped off at any of the sheriff’s office substations listed below between Nov. 1 and Nov. 4 at 4 p.m.
