Saint Irenaeus School Student Council has partnered with Operation Gratitude, a non-profit corporation, to send extra Halloween candy to military heroes this year.
The Oakmont school will collect any extra unopened candy on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 5 and 6, during all school hours.
Operation Gratitue annually sends 100,000 care packages filled with snacks, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation to U.S. Service Members.
Saint Irenaues students have also spent time creating "Thank You" cards and letters to send with the candy.
Student Council advisor Keith Gillis said he hopes to collect three to four bozes worth of candy to donate to Operation Gratitude.
"Candy collection for the troops is just one simple service project for us to show our appreciation this year," he said.
