Sweet Season for Giving...Yet Again!


Well SAS, you outdid yourselves once again! For 7 years running, we've been collecting and donating leftover and excess Halloween candy from SAS families. After last year's record breaking 580 pounds of donated candy, we challenged you to raise the {candy} bar even higher this year...and man did you do that, tipping the scales at 680 pounds of candy!  

That's 100 pounds MORE than we collected last year and brings us up to a total of 2,600 pounds of candy donated since 2012.  WOW!

@SASsoftware family generously donated 680 pounds of candy to the #troops. Talk about a season for #giving! #saslife Click To Tweet

So what happened to ALL that candy?

Well, we are happy to report that we donated the candy to NCPacks4Patriots. The candy, along with other items such as holiday decorations, games, food, toiletries, and more were packed into Christmas Goodie Bags and distributed to our deserving service men and women, both local and deployed.  We were also able to include these thoughtful notes from a few young SAS family members.  What a truly great season of giving! Thank you, SAS!
