Colby Community College will be hosting a candy buyback from 3 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2, in the Thomas Hall administration office.

All wrapped candy will be purchased at $1 per pound and then sent to troops via Operation Gratitude. With the candy, participants are also encouraged to take a thank-you note or drawing for the troops.

Operation Gratitude sends care packages filled with snacks and entertainment items, plus personal letters of appreciation to recruits, veterans, first responders, wounded heroes, caregivers and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas.

For more information on the candy buy-back, call (785) 460-5411 or email
