Cash for candy, then gifted to troops overseas
Save your candy from Halloween and trade if for cash. Florence Pediatric Dentistry will be hosting its 6th Annual Halloween Candy Buyback event on Monday, Nov. 2, as part of Operation Gratitude. This event takes place at The Toy Shop, located at Seven Oaks Shopping Plaza on Hoffmeyer Road. Children are encouraged to bring some of their extra Halloween candy, where it will be bought for $1 per pound (up to five pounds).
All candy that is collected will be sorted and then sent to our troops that are serving around the globe. If anyone has leftover candy, they are also welcome to drop it off at the event so it can be shared with those protecting us overseas. Along with the candy buyback, Block & Vino will be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs for anyone that participates in the buyback event. The Toy Shop will have Berg pedal carts for children and adults to test drive, as well as a drawing for prizes from the store.
