Operation GratitudeHalloween Candies for Troops -
November 1-7, 2013

Wondering what you're going to do with all that Halloween candy?

The office of Portnoy and Tu is requesting your help this Halloween.  If you have excess candy that you do not want around your house, please bring it to our office.  We will be partnering with Operation Gratitude, a California based non-profit organization that sends care packages to our troops year around. Our military personnel find the candy useful in making friends with the Afghan children and their families,  who in turn inform them where the IED's (Improvised Explosive Devices) are located.  The troops also enjoy eating the candy as they cannot get it in the Middle East. 

 

We would like to thank you in advance for assisting us in supporting our troops.  We are proud to be Americans and are especially proud of our troops peacekeeping efforts.

Drs Portnoy, Tu and staff
