The Tampa Bay trick-or-treaters are now just a memory but the candy remains. Here’s what you can do with your leftover Halloween candy.

Clearwater wants you to donate it to our troops serving overseas. They have set up candy donation sites at several recreation centers around the city. Here are the locations and times:

  • Clearwater Beach Recreation Center
    • Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Friday from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. -noon
  • Countryside Recreation Center
    • Monday-Friday, 5 a.m.- 8:30 p.m., Saturday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • The Long Center
    • Monday-Thursday, 6 a.m.-9 p.m., Friday 6 a.m.-7 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m.-5p.m.
  • Morningside Recreation Complex
    • Monday-Friday, 6 a.m.-8 p.m., Saturday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Sunday 1-5 p.m.
  • North Greenwood Recreation Complex

  • Ross Norton Recreation Complex
    • Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m., Saturday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

For every pound of Halloween candy that you donate, you get a ticket for a shot to win a prize. If you write a letter or donate other items like ground coffee, toothpaste, shaving razors, white tube socks, or beef jerky, you get additional entries.

That leftover candy and other items will go a long way with our deployed troops who couldn’t be here with their families.
