A sweet donation from a group of Atlanta area students to the military and first responders.

As a "thank you" for their service, Atlanta students donated hundreds of pounds of candy from their own trick-or-treating stashes.

The candy was collected at the Fulton County Sheriff's Office by Advanced Cosmetic and Family Dentistry" along with Operation Gratitude.

The effort seeks to lift the spirits of military, veterans, and first responders through their care package program.

The Candy Care Packages will be delivered to past, present, and deployed service members, as well as first responders over the holiday season.
