Trick-or-Treating season is here and dentists around Columbus are giving kids incentive to donate some of their candy through Halloween Candy Buy Back. Pick out a few favorites, and get rid of the rest!
NOTE: this program appears to be very limited in 2020 due to restrictions in place at medical offices. We haven’t been able to verify that any local offices are participating. Check out our article of other places you can donate leftover Halloween candy.
You can also ship your leftover candy directly to Operation Gratitude so that they can distribute it to our troops. You will be responsible for shipping costs. See details and FAQ’s here.
Kids will receive money and/or goodie bags for donating 1 pound or more of their Halloween candy, which will be sent overseas to our troops through Veteran’s organizations. Troops will get to enjoy a taste of the Halloween holiday and will often pass out candy to kids that they encounter on their duties overseas.
How much candy does your child REALLY need – it’s bad for their teeth and waistline! Check out the list of Dental Office around Central Ohio who are participating, or click here for other locations in the US. These dental offices are generously donating their own money for the buy back programs and for shipping the candy to Operation Gratitude – support the cause by bringing in the candy!
Click on the links or contact the offices with questions or for additional details. Most are collecting in the few days after trick-or-treating, but may be limited to specific hours. You don’t have to be a patient to stop in and donate.
