Bring your candy, bring your smile, give our Troops a sweet surprise!
This year we are calling all Trick-Or-Treaters to participate in our Halloween Candy Give Back / Buy Back program, Thursday, November 1st through Monday, November 5th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Kids get to bring in their extra candy and receive $1 for every pound of candy donated and a free toothbrush.
The doctors and staff at Aventura Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics will weigh the candy and give out toothbrushes to make sure the kids brush after all the candy consumption!
Best of all, the candy will be shipped to courageous soldiers overseas (who would surely appreciate a treat or two!) through Operation Gratitude, a non-profit organization dedicated to sending care packages to our troops. Last year they shipped 120 TONS!
One marine stated in his letter after receiving a package: "It's generous people like you that make all the long months away from home, family and friends worth the sacrifice."
So come in with your candy, smile and a thank you letter to the troops and help make a difference! The candy must be unopened. Please no bites!
