While Halloween 2020 may look a little different, and trick-or-treat alternatives may be more in vogue than candy collecting, if you find yourself with a candy hangover, we're here to help. We've found seven charitable organizations where you can donate Halloween candy—or any unopened candy. In the midst of the pandemic, many of these organizations are short on sweets and could benefit from your donation even more than years past. While it might be hard for kids to let the candy go, getting in the habit of giving back lets them enjoy a truly special treat: the feeling of helping others.
If you want to hang on to a few pieces, we have more creative uses for sweet stuff like making candy crafts or using it for these science experiments, plus plenty of activities and inspiration for Halloween weekend in our Halloween Guide.
