Kiwanis Club candy sales sweeten the holidays

-A +A
It’s that time of year again to stock up on your favorite See’s Candy with the help of the Kiwanis Club. Proceeds from the sales benefit children in the community, with reading programs at local elementary schools, scholarships for graduating seniors, good student awards, Auburn Ravine clean-up projects, hospital bags for children at Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital and supporting community Little League programs. Buyers of the sweets may also donate boxes of candy to be sent to military personnel serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. And the gift of giving doesn’t stop there, with an Angel Tree on display for shoppers to buy gifts for local children, fulfilling their holiday wish list. The store, at 13412 Lincoln?Way in Auburn, is open through Dec. 24. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week. ~ Ben Furtado
