This morning I woke up and looked at around five pounds of candy.
With a three-year-old, two-year-old and a set of parents that don’t need to add anything to their waistline, I need to get rid of it. Which is where the program Halloween Buy Back comes in handy. Basically this program collects candy that gets it from your local dentist. Through this program they get, “…candy and dental hygiene products to send to our Troops for the Holidays!”
How does it work?
Find a dentist near you that participates HERE. You may want to call the dentist to ask about their program specifics, but most are offering $1 a pound for your Halloween candy. Most dentists will have an event to accomplish this, but they may all be different so make sure you check and not just show up at their office.
No one needs that much candy, so why not give it to a worthy cause. Make our troops overseas smile after your kids had a wonderful night trick-or-treating. You can even let them pick out a handful of candy and then teach them about what you are going to do. It’s a wonderful moment to let them do something that will make a global impact.
