Treats for Troops
Does your school have what it takes to win Treats for Troops, a Snodgrass King candy buy back program?
For information on our 2015 Halloween Candy Buyback Program and find participating locations, click here. **
This year is the 3rd annual Treats for Troops. And, there are 8 Wilson County elementary schools participating in this year’s buy back. Each school has a chance to win $250 up to $1500, all for just donating candy!
Here’s what you’ll need to do — on the night of Halloween, collect as much candy as possible. Eat the candy you want, then bring all of your unwanted, unopened candy for Treats for Troops. Bring your candy into the Snodgrass King – Mt. Juliet office on the night your school competes. Your weigh-in schedule is below:
Mon. Nov 3rd 4:30pm-6:30pm Mount Juliet Elementary vs. Stoner Creek Elementary
Tues. Nov 4th 4:30pm-6:30pm Rutland Elementary vs. Lakeview Elementary
Wed. Nov 5th 4:30pm-6:30pm WA Wright Elementary vs. Gladeville Elementary
Thurs. Nov 6th 4:30pm-6:30pm West Elementary vs. Elzie Patton Elementary
Your student will come home with a Treats for Troops bag the week of Halloween. Please use this bag to help you transport your unwanted candy to the Snodgrass King office. Once we have everyone weighed in, we will announce the winner! Students will not receive individual cash for their candy; but, they will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win door prizes throughout the night. All money raised will go to the school.
In order for your candy to be counted, you must:
- Bring it into the Snodgrass King Mt. Juliet office on the night of your event (Candy turned in at the school will not be counted)
- All candy must be unopened
At the end of the week, and after all schools have weighed in, we will ship the candy to our soldiers overseas. So come donate your candy and stick around for some fun. We have an awesome arcade room and Jets pizza is on the house! We hope you will join us in this effort to give back to our soldiers overseas while your school receives some hard earned candy cash!
