Donations to Packages 4 Patriots

This year’s Halloween Candy Buyback occurred on Sunday, November 1st, 2020 at 12 W Schaumburg Rd. Schaumburg IL, 60193.  We had kids and adults turn in their Halloween candy for cash!!! 1lb = $1.00. This year we collected over 700lbs of candy. This candy and other donated items will then be sent to US troops overseas with Packages4Patriots.

In addition to candy, we also asked participants to donate the following items.

Items Needed For Troops

  • Letters & Drawings
  • Protein Bars
  • Gum, sunflower seeds, trail mix, coffee, and nuts.
  • Hygiene Products – Body wash, shampoo, deodorant, razors, chapstick
  • Moisturizer, sunblock, foot powder, nail clippers, and more!


We were so thrilled with how many donations were made that our own Dr. Dawn Diehnelt, D.D.S made a cash donation to help cover the shipping and ongoing mission of Packages 4 Patriots.
