Alright, so if your children are like mine, we trick or treated at our local church trunk or treat. Then got invited to a friend's church for Trunk or Treat. Both of those events being earlier in the week, then we decided that we needed to do something officially on Halloween, so we Trick or Treated at the local mall.
If you are like us, you have a ton of candy. Some will get eaten, but the great majority of it will still be sitting around at New Years. There is a program called Halloween Candy Buy Back. Local dentist and community groups will buy back all of the unwanted Halloween candy to help Operation Gratitude. Operation Gratitude puts together care packages for troops stationed overseas. Last year, they received and shipped 60 TONS of candy!
Check out the Halloween Candy Buy Back site to find a dentist or community group in your area. Or if you are a dentist, who would like to participate in this program, you can also find more information on the website.
