Halloween Candy Buy Back Programs

If your children end up with too much candy this Halloween, and you want to swiftly remove it from the house, consider taking part in the Halloween Candy Buy Back Program. Participating area dentists will buy back Halloween candy from neighborhood children, then send it to the troops overseas as part of Operation Gratitude.

Operation Gratitude annually sends more than 100,000 care packages, filled with snacks, toiletries, entertainment, hand-made items and letters of appreciation. The mission of Operation Gratitude is to lift the morale of and express appreciation for our military and their families.
