I don’t have kids and since we have more ornery teenagers than cute princess and vampire types in the neighborhood, we keep our lights off on Halloween. (Bah humbug, I know … I also know that my cat likes to launch himself at people.) However, I came across this suggestion on one of my friend’s Facebook feeds today to take your kids’ (or yours – no judgement if you are in your 30s and go trick-or-treating) candy to dentists who participate in the Halloween Candy Buy Back. The website for information about this program and what dentists are participating may be found here. They collect the candy, give you x-amount per pound and then the candy is donated to Operation Gratitude or other military support groups. The candy ultimately gets shipped to U.S. troops who are currently deployed.
I hope that everyone had a safe and happy Halloween!
