Here's what you can do with all that Halloween candy that your children collect: Give it to a dentist.
Dr. Michael Foley and his staff at Winning Smiles Pediatric Dentistry will host their 11th annual Halloween candy buy-back event Wednesday, Nov. 1. Children are invited to exchange their candy for $1 per pound, a toothbrush and more.
Last year, the group collected more than 5,000 pounds of candy for Packs4Patriots, an organization that assembles care packages for troops.
The candy can be dropped off from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the offices at 205 Linwood Ave., 3476 Sheridan Drive, Amherst, or 3364 Southwestern Blvd., Orchard Park.
“This candy buy-back program is a win for everyone, helping children make responsible decisions about their health, all while helping and supporting our brave soldiers overseas,” Foley said.
