halloween candy buyback

Pin It
i just know that my little lego pirate is going to rake in tons of candy this year.  there's no way we're eating all of it.  but what do you do with it?
 

source
simple. visit  Halloween Candy Buy Back and find a dentist near you that's participating in a buyback program.  that's where you give them your candy and they give your kiddo a prize of some sort.  the candy is then packaged up and sent to troops overseas as part of Operation Gratitude.  (more on this amazing program coming soon!)

This sounds like a great thing to do. Kids always get too much candy.

I love the halloween candy buy back. We always have our daughter "trade in" her candy for toys, books and other items. She gets to pick 10 pieces to keep and the rest gets traded in.
