Candy Ideas as a Thank You to Volunteers


Sometimes a simple thank you to volunteers is not enough to recognize what all their time, dedication and hard work meant to you and your organization. When you want to show your gratitude, candy works as the perfect thank you. Nearly everyone one enjoys its sweetness and many candies can be personalized.


  • Lifesavers not only come in your choice of flavor---peppermint, spearmint, mint and orange---but their name also says it all. Volunteers are lifesavers. You can even write a note that reads, "You're a lifesaver!" to accompany each bag you give away.

Hershey Bars

  • Hershey chocolate bars come with a paper sleeve around them. Simply remove the sleeve, print your own "Thank You" sleeve on the computer and wrap it around the chocolate as a customized thank you to all your volunteers. To suit all different tastes, you can choose milk chocolate, dark chocolate, chocolate with almonds and cookie and cream Hershey bars.

Hershey Kisses and Hugs

  • If you and your volunteers are a particularly tight-knit group, you can hand out Hershey Kisses and Hugs which sends the message of gratitude and appreciation all on its own. To make the candies look more festive, wrap them in colored cellophane and tie ribbons on them.

Gold Chocolate Coins

  • Gold chocolate coins are another way to show your volunteers their value. Simply attach a note to these chocolate candies that reads, "You're worth your weight in gold." The volunteers will know how much they are valued.


  • You can customize your M&M's on the M&M's website. You can choose the color of the M&M's as well as the message printed on them: thank you, your organization's name or even your organization's logo. To present the customized M&M's to your volunteers, put them in jars and tie ribbons around them.
