Corona Events Candy Buyback

Throughout the week during regular patient hours you can bring your left over, unopened Halloween candy and make a soldier’s day!  At the same time, you can be saving your children from possible cavities and yourself from an unnecessary added expense. For every 1 pound of unopened candy, your child will receive 4 tokens to their toy towers.

Operation Gratitude is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, volunteer-based organization that sends care packages & letters of support to individual Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen & Marines deployed in harm’s way, to their children left behind, and to First Responders, Veterans, New Recruits, Military Families, Wounded Heroes and their caregivers. Operation Gratitude plans to assemble and ship 200,000+ care packages over the next 12 months. Each package contains product (including candy) valued at $45-100 and costs us $15 to assemble and ship.
