THE THIRD ANNUAL HALLOWEEN CANDY BUY BACK was an overwhelming success this year. Thanks to the many civic groups and individuals who participated in our efforts to keep cavities at bay while sending something sweet to our troops, we collected 300 pounds of candy. Kids from all over the metro participated in this fun event, swapping their sweets for $1 per pound of candy donated.
The Team at Foster Dental Care started collected candy at their Buy Back on November 4th and continued accepting donations through November 8th. To celebrate the home of the free, because of the brave, the team boxed up all candy on Veteran’s Day. Twenty-three boxes of candy were mailed to Operation Gratitude who will in turn create personalized care packages for our service men and women in military hospitals or serving abroad. Last year, Foster Dental Care mailed 15 boxes.
It is exciting to see this event grow each year and we are thankful to those who give up their treats in order to see a smile on a soldier’s face. To see pictures from the 2013 Halloween Candy Buy Back event, visit our Facebook 2013 Halloween Candy Buy Back photo album.
