A lot of dental practices do some sort of candy buy back program around Halloween to encourage kids to drop all those gooey, sticky sweets and take better care of their teeth. But we go one step further… we work with Move America Forward to ship all of that candy to the men and women of the Armed Services that are currently serving overseas! It’s our way of saying THANK YOU to all who serve, and also to bring a smile to their faces from back home.
During the 2019 event, OHIOSmiles collected nearly 150 pounds of candy to send to troops.
Check out Move America Forward to find out how to send care packages to the troops all year long, and be sure to watch for our next candy collection. We will be accepting candy this year until November 8th; next candy collection is fall of 2021.
