Get your ‘cash for candy’ at The Esplanade in Kenner – WDSU News

If you’re looking for a place to drop off excess Halloween candy, head to Kenner.

The Esplanade mall is taking unwanted Halloween candy and offering an incentive for children and their families. Organizers said for every pound of unopened candy, children will get $1. They hope children will buy a book or toy that will last longer.

Organizers will donate the candy to the Women and Children’s Shelter in New Orleans.

Children can drop off candy until Saturday. Organizers said the “cash for candy” event is an effort to help children learn about being healthy and helping people.

Candy can be dropped off at the We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym at the mall. The Esplanade is located at 1401 W. Esplanade Ave. in Kenner.

More information about the mall can be found online.
