J.F. Burns Candy for the Troops Drive

Posted on: November 1, 2018
JFB Candy for the Troops Drive
For the 8th year, J.F. Burns Elementary School will collect Halloween candy to send to the troops overseas. All candy is sent via the Yellow Ribbon Support Center. The candy drive will begin on Thursday, November 1 and run through Friday, November 9. Our goal is always to exceed the previous year's haul. Last year we collected a record 3,206 pounds of candy for deployed troops.
Candy (and monetary) donations can be brought to JF Burns Elementary School located at  8471 Columbia Rd in Landen. There will be a drop box located in the main hallway for after-hours donations. All types of candy and snacks (including chocolate) will be accepted (no candy shaped like body parts please). If possible, please send the candy into the school in a zip-lock baggie. They will also gladly accept donations of quart size zip-lock baggies! There will also be a drop box located at  Mac's Pizza Pub Landen!
Monetary donations are accepted to help cover the cost of shipping. You may send a check in made payable to "The Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation" or make donations via PayPal through All donations are tax deductible.
If you have a loved one deployed in harms way, please email Keith Maupin at  or you may send a private message to the Yellow Ribbon Support Center via their Faceboook page.
