Macon dentist dishes out dollars for candy

Excess of Halloween candy can be donated to soldiers, veterans

This month, if your kids bring in one full, sandwich-sized bag of candy to one of these locations, they will get a $5 Target gift card. This is the fifth year that the dentist has been buying back candy.

At Halloween, kids often get a lot of candy - too much candy to eat before it goes bad.

Every child who donates 25 pieces of unopened candy will receive a toy. All donated candy will be sent via Operation Gratitude to USA service members stationed overseas. According to Dr. Sagera, "We like to help so we sacrifice a little bit of that Halloween candy to a better cause".

Treats for Troops' collection program includes local businesses, such as a dental office.

Operation Gratitude started encouraging dental offices to collect Halloween candy to send to the troops in 2007.

Along with candy, the dentist office will also be sending dental kits and letters of appreciation to the USA troops.

For the 11th straight year, Lima Road Dentistry will buy back Halloween candy at $1 per pound with a $$10 max.

"The troops actually give [the candy] to children that they're around there to earn trust which really makes it cool", said Sugg.

Gold said Kool Smiles collected more than 4 tons of candy nationwide past year.
