Goblins, ghosts, and candy, oh my! The most ghoulish day of year, Halloween, is about to arrive. Why not save your children’s teeth and help a good cause? As a parent, teaching a child to give back is essential, and this Halloween will be a perfect opportunity to do so!
The annual Halloween Candy Buy Back program is back to shine for another year. In 2005, the organization was founded as a way to get kids’ excess Halloween candy “off the streets.” The program has since teamed up with Spry and Operation Gratitude; together they will partner with dentist offices nationwide to collect children’s Halloween candy to send to the troops overseas along with toothbrushes and necessary oral care items. This simple act of kindness not only gives soldiers a “Halloween away from home,” but it enables children to exchange their Halloween candy and receive a token in return, whether it be a new toothbrush, a dollar per pound of candy exchanged, or other small prizes provided by participating dental practices.
