They donated more than half of the Halloween candy they collected for the soldiers on Wednesday.
They also made cards and posters to let the soldiers know they’re being thought of and that the children appreciate their service.
“Thank you to our troops!” said a group of children.
Regardless of the size of the gesture, it was a great way for the children to learn the importance of serving others in the community.
CBS4 asked the kids how much candy they collected, and answers ranged from around 50 to several billion pounds.
