At Kool Smiles, "Operation Troop Treats" is underway, encouraging kids to donate their candy to then be given to US troops.
A great use of that Halloween candy is to remind our troops that they're not forgotten! The goodies are then sent overseas to the troops.
"This is an opportunity for children to not only learn about monitoring their candy and also about savings as far as financial savings, but you can go beyond this holiday and beyond the costumes and the fun and think about our community and troops overseas", said Pamela Weitzel, dental concierge at Frankel Dentistry. Organizers say that children will receive a small monetary buy-back per pound of candy donated, and children 18 and under who donate will have a chance to win an iPad.
Any child that brings at least 25 pieces of candy will get a toy. The treats will be donated to "Operation Shoebox" for care packages.
'He Was Wrong': Reporter Confronts Sanders on Gen. Kelly's Criticism of Wilson
President Donald Trump's latest Twitter foe is a Democratic U.S. congresswoman from Florida who wears a glittering cowboy hat. Their standoff started Tuesday, when Wilson claimed in an interview with CNN that she was in a vehicle with the wife of U.S.
The goal of the Halloween Candy Buyback program is to remove "excess Halloween candy from kids while supporting our troops", according to the website. For every pound of candy a child brings in, they will get $1 and be entered into a drawing for various prizes.
Angela Becker Orthodontics will hold its 13th annual candy buy-back at its two locations, at 4638 W. Jefferson Blvd.in Fort Wayne and 2818 Theater Ave.in Huntington.
Candy can be exchanged during the company's office hours: 8 a.m. -5 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m. -2 p.m. Saturday.
