Local Company Sends Sweetness To Soldiers

SWEET! NCCI employee Kelly Cavaleri, of Delray Beach, shows what 212 pounds of donated candy looks like. NCCI employees recently donated their leftover Halloween candy to soldiers posted overseas.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A big Boca pat on the back for local company NCCI — again helping others through volunteerism and charity. The worker's compensation information company acted on a great idea involving Halloween Candy:

Instead of snacking on their surplus Halloween candy, or throwing it away, employees of Boca Raton-based NCCI donated their leftover candy to Operation Shoebox — a nonprofit organization that supports our troops deployed outside of the United States by sending them care packages, letters and bulk items. NCCI collected a total of 212 pounds of leftover candy for the troops overseas.

Unclear if the nation's military men and women had to agree not to sue the government for workers comp claims resulting from too much sugar intake.


Yes, we're kidding.
