SmilePlus Dentistry participated in Halloween Candy Buy Back Program this year to support Operation Gratitude. The event took place at our office last Thursday November 3, 2011 from 3-7pm. We paid $1.00 per pound (up to 5 pound) to whoever brought their leftover unopened Halloween candies. We collected little over 70 pounds of candies! Candies were packed and shipped to OPERATION GRATITUDE in Van Nuys, CA. They will include candies into individual holiday care packages along with other necessary and fun items for our troops & ship them overseas to our soldiers stationed in war zones. We are thankful to everyone who was generous to share and donate their candies for this cause!
