Several organizations have agreed to accept excess Halloween candy from kids to share with troops and veterans. "Kids don't really need ten pounds of candy so it's nice to get that out of their hands", Harper said, "As you know, candy causes cavities, it contributes to childhood obesity, and the program really gives everybody an opportunity to show the troops how much we appreciate them".
