Do your kids get way too much candy than they could possibly consume? Did you not get less trick or treaters than you expected? Some local dentists are participating in the Halloween Candy Buyback program.
Kids can donate or “sell” their candy. Candy and toothbrushes (along with other goodies) will be sent to troops abroad serving our country through Operation Gratitude.
Operation Gratitude sends 15,000+ care packages annually with snacks, treats, entertainment items, hygiene, handmade goodies and personal letters and cards to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors, Care Givers and to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed overseas.
Bundle up that extra candy and make a couple thank you cards for our brave troops and head over to one of these locations!
