After all the hard work trick or treaters went through on Halloween walking around neighborhoods on the hunt for candy, a local dental office wants to buy it all back and, it's all for a good cause.
All the candy Kool Smiles collects over the next several days will be used in care packages, all in hopes of putting a smile on a solider's face.
As part of Operation Troops Treats, through Nov. 6, for every 25 pieces of candy a child donates to Kool Smiles, they'll receive a toy.
The dental office is teaming up with Operation Gratitude and in return, the candy collected will be used in care packages and sent to our brave men and women serving overseas to remind them of home sweet home.
Nichole Stallard with Kool Smiles says it is important to let troops know that their sacrifice is not forgotten.
"I think it's an awesome program that we have and I love our troops and we love supporting them," Stallard says.
"Sometimes you get on with your life and you don't think about them. It's nice to be appreciated and thought of, especially when they're out there risking their lives for all of us," Stallard says. "It's a lot of candy and stuff for one person to eat so 25 pieces really isn't that much at all."
Kool Smiles is located at 3711 Gregory Street and is open from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. and they say you don't have to be a current patient to take part.
Last year, Kool Smiles Dental offices across the country donated over 2,300 pounds of Halloween candy to members of our military serving overseas.
