Have you heard about the idea of Halloween Candy Buy-Back? There seem to be several versions of this idea, and many local dentists may participate on their own so make sure to ask yours!
Children can take Halloween Candy to participating dentist offices and community locations at scheduled events.
Dentists "buy" the candy in exchange for cash, coupons, toothbrushes, etc. and send it to Operation Gratitude or other military support groups.
Operation Gratitude: collects the candy and sends it to military troops deployed in harms way. Operation Gratitude accepts candy from anyone, not just dentists. They are working with schools, businesses, gyms, religious and civic groups, and individuals who collect candy and then ship it to them.
This program can be a great way to give to others (and support our troops!) while reducing the candy in your house and make positive use of any leftover candy when Halloween trick-or-treating is over. Click HERE to learn more about Operation Gratitude.
Halloween Candy Buy Back Program: website the following dentists are participating locally and have registered with them for 2018. It may be worthwhile to check with your current dentist, they may have a similar policy for Halloween candy!
