Satisfy your sweet tooth at Rocklin See’s Candy store

Kiwanis fundraiser help club, troops
-A +A

Rocklin Kiwanis is selling See’s Candy from an outlet at the Walgreens shopping center, at the corner of Park and Sunset in Rocklin, from now through Christmas Eve.

A big part of the fundraising program is to get buyers to get extra candy to send overseas to American service personnel. Last year, they sent 213 pounds of candy to overseas troops.

Ten Kiwanis clubs in the area sent more than a ton abroad last year. Lincoln Kiwanis alone shipped 969 pounds for soldiers. They call the extra candy program “See’s for Soldiers. Sgt. Dave Partak picks up the designated candy, and arranges shipment. Partak, active with the National Guard, came up with the “See’s for Soldiers” idea five years ago.

Last year, Partak was awarded the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal for his service to the greater Sacramento communities. Partak and his wife started “See’s for Soldiers” in 2005.

Area clubs expect to exceed last year’s record shipment of 2,284 pounds of candy to troops.
