Halloween Candy Buy Back!

Came across this today on the Old Colony Memorial site.  Great idea!!

Dr. Kerr and Dr. Lutz Family Dentistry will be buying back candy from local trick-or-treaters for a Halloween candy buy-back event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6, at both their Plymouth offices, 233 Water St. and 3 Market Crossing in The Pinehills. In partnership with the Nathan Hale Foundation and the local VFW, candy collected will be sent to troops overseas in their holiday boxes. Kerr and Lutz will be paying $1 per pound to children who want to “give it up” for a good cause. Children will also have the opportunity to write a special holiday message to the soldiers to be included with the candy. Candy must be wrapped and unopened. All trick-or-treaters are welcome to give their piggy banks a “boo”st and reach out to troops who will be away from home this holiday season.

A great way to get rid of all that candy and a great cause to be involved in!

This confuses me b/c I thought you were not supposed to send choco to the troops. Still, I think it is a fantastic idea! A little girl in our town is taking donations to drop at a hospital with many cancer patients in Boston. Her mom says that those getting treatments often get a dry mouth, so the candy helps... In any case, all organizations and individuals offering their excess candy to make others smile is awesome!
