Activity Description

SERVE at Home is a way for your family to spread kindness and help our community on your own, anytime, anywhere! We want to keep Austin volunteering all week long! Please RSVP on our calendar so we can let our non-profit partner know how many items to expect.

For this activity, you will work with your family at home to make candy bags for Soldiers' Angels. The candy bags will be included in care packages that are shipped to deployed service members around the world and shared with veterans in VA Hospitals across the country.

You will need to provide the supplies for this activity. You can complete this activity on your own anytime during the month.

Activity Directions

  • Get some fun-size candy (this is a great use for excess candy after holidays like Valentine's Day).
  • Using a treat bag or clear plastic baggie, place an assortment of candy in the baggie and secure it with a twist tie or decorative ribbon
  • If you would like, you can also attach a small card to the bag of candy that has a simple message like “Thank you for your service!”

Ship your completed baggies of candy to Soldiers' Angels headquarters in San Antonio:
