Here are drop off locations in Tampa, St. Pete, Palm Harbor, Trinity, Wesley Chapel and Bradenton for Operation Gratitude. Did your kids maybe do a little too well in the candy hunt? Once again this year, Operation Gratitude will gladly take any extra candy you have and send it to soldiers who love getting treats from home. They also make deliveries to first responders, veterans, wounded heroes and their care givers. Here are the 5 locations in our area where you can drop off candy. They ask that you NOT buy half-off candy at stores after Halloween. They would definitely prefer you take any money you would have used and make a cash donation to help them provider other things like toiletries, snacks and entertainment.
