Candy problem

by Dragon / December 17, 2004 9:41 AM PST

The past couple of months, my company has given us candy, as in by the case (about three). My wife, who is watching what she eats, has said that its got to go, because its like putting beer in front of an alcholic. So, my question to you is, what can I do with it, short of throwing it away? Im open to suggestions. Happy

Convalescent Hospitals. They appreciate any acts of kindness at this time of year, and if they don't have much family, they often feel left out. I'd but it in plastic wrap with a pretty bow and let the owners of he facility know who you are and what it is about so they don't have concerned with contamination.

People with Alzheimers or dementia in general, tend to have an incredile sweet tooth, even if they hadn't been that way prior to the onset of the illness. IOW, you would be a real hero to them Wink

Around here we have Second harvest Food Bank drives, with which schools, scout troops, USPS. and other concerned citizens participate.

With the war new needs have surfaced, as so many Guard and Reserve units have been deployed. Our neighborhood association sponsored 2 families (the official contact for such help lives here, so made the recommendations). Active military members at Ft. Campbell have also held drives for the families of the deployed.

Such organized groups, including churches, give a better chance of knowing where donations should go, and that the folks will actually get them.

The Salvation Army would also appreciate the candy.

If you have an organization that runs a homeless shelter, that would be a good place.

All of these actually deliver the goods to those that need them.

There have been cases here where unscrupulous staff at various places have made off with them.

You and your wife have good hearts! I share her love of sweets, as well. Happy

Angeline

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
