More than 600 LBs of Candy Collected for US Troops Overseas

We want to extend a big THANK YOU to everyone who came out and shared their time – and candy – at the Meriter/Physician’s Plus Halloween Candy Trade-In party, held November 2 at the Meriter West Washington Clinic.  We are in awe of everyone’s generosity. In just three hours, we collected an incredible 660 pounds of candy! It was great to see everyone come together to support such a great cause. All the candy and hand written notes will soon be on their way to U.S. troops in Afghanistan through Operation Gratitude.

We also want to send our thanks and appreciation to Fresh Madison Market, for their fresh fruit donations, as well as many other small local businesses that donated prizes for the event.
