Overwhelmed with excess candy leftover from Halloween? Participate in the Great Halloween Candy Buy Back of 2014 by donating your candy to a local dentistry practice participating in the buy back program. Candy donations will then be included in care packages for men and women serving in the military overseas through organizations like Operation Gratitude or other military support groups. The Halloween Candy Buy Back website and the Operation Gratitude blog provide more information, including a list of dentists who participate.
Simply bring excess candy to a participating dentist. If you want, your children may also include a basic thank you note to our servicemen and women. The local dentistry practices will box up the candy and give $1 per pound to your child. They will then ship the candy plus toothbrushes to our men and women serving in the military overseas.
There are at least two dentistry practices in South Orange and a few others in the other towns locally. Contact one of the participating practices to find out more.
