Halloween is right around the corner! No, we’re not going to tell you or your kiddos not to enjoy any candy, BUT we do want to let you know about a fun way to enjoy *some* of your candy and send the rest to our troops overseas!
During the first week in November (through November 7th), you are invited to Swap Your Sweets! You can bring in your extra or unwanted Halloween candy to any Mortenson Family Dental, Braces Braces Braces, or Kid’s Dentistree location (in KY or IN) during that office’s regular hours to get a $5 gift card*! Here are the rules and details:
- Each person may swap one bag of candy.
- You must have at least a sandwich-size bag of candy.
- Please do not include any chocolate! (It melts in the mail when shipped overseas.)
- *Each of office selects their own gift cards, and some offer $5 cash. We can’t guarantee what might be available at any given location, but you are welcome to call an office to ask!
All of the candy that we collect will go to Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit organization that annually sends 150,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, plus personal letters of appreciation, to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors, Care Givers and to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed overseas.
Have a safe and fun Halloween, and remember, you have until November 7th to swap!
