Halloween can be a fantastic time for families to dress up in spooky costumes, and inherit quite a lot of candy! While candy can be really tasty, it is terrible for teeth, and much of it goes uneaten every year. Our dental office is trying to help out by hosting our annual candy buy back campaign, which rewards children with cash for exchanging their candy. Even better is that the majority of the candy will be donated to Operation Gratitude, which gives troops serving abroad a taste of home.
Operation Gratitude annually sends upwards of 200,000 care packages filled with food, entertainment, hygiene, and handmade items, plus personal letters of appreciation to members of our armed forces. It’s an amazing way to say “Thank You” to all who serve, and help them feel more at home while they’re serving.
Each Halloween, we offer our young patients a chance to trade in their hard earned trick-or-treat candy for a little bit of money. For each pound of candy that they donate, we give them 1 dollar in cash. Then, we take the candy and send it to Operation Gratitude to help give our armed service men and women a little slice of home.
Contact our office if you would like to participate in our candy buy back, and support our troops with the help of Operation Gratitude.
