The Oakland County Sheriff's Office is accepting Halloween candy as part of its seventh annual "Treats for Troops" initiative.

The donations will be collected to send thanks, encouragement and sweets to our troops overseas.

Sheriff Michael Bouchard also encourages parents and children to include notes to say thank you.

"Treats for Troops is a great way parents can participate in a community service project with their kids while showing our troops we support them back home," said Bouchard.

You can drop off donations Tuesday, November 1 through Friday, November 4 until 4:00pm.
