Sweeter than candy

Libbie Stanton is nine years old and lives in Vail, Colorado. She does not like to eat candy, but loves Halloween anyway. So, for the past three years, she's been getting people to donate their leftover Halloween candy so she send it to troops serving abroad.

Treats for Troops is a program run by a charity called Soldier's Angels. Every year, they sound thousands of pounds of candy to troops and veterans. Libbie got involved in 2016, when she collected about 80 pounds of candy. Her goal this year was 1,000 pounds. She knows she's not just sending soldiers candy. She's also sending them hope, and love.
