Trick-or-treating season is here and dentists around the country are giving kids incentive to donate some of their candy through Halloween Candy Buy Back by Operation Gratitude.
Kids will receive money and/or goodie bags for donating one pound or more of their Halloween candy, which will be sent overseas to our troops by Operation Gratitude. Troops will get to enjoy a taste of the Halloween holiday and will often pass out candy to kids that they encounter on their duties overseas. This year, Operation Gratitude expects to send its one millionth care package to the troops. Most offices are also collecting cards and letters to send to the troops, as well as tooth brushes and monetary donations to help pay for the shipping.
Search by zip code to find the nearest participating dental office. These dental offices are generously donating their own money for the buy back programs and for shipping the candy to Operation Gratitude.
