Get paid up $1 per pound for your Halloween Candy (limit 5 pounds). Candy will be collected at all Dr. JAW Orthodontists locations November 1st and 2nd from 7am-5pm. The candy that we receive will be sent to OPERATION GRATITUDE, a program that prepares care packages to deployed troops. A portion of candy will also be donated to local charities.This is the 5th year that Dr. JAW is sponsoring a Halloween Candy Buy Back. “We are offering the program as a way to show our brave service men and women how much we appreciate them,” says Dr. James Weaver. “Kids still have the all the fun of trick or treating, but now have the opportunity to donate the candy that we want them to steer clear of, those that can damage their braces or compromise an orthodontic treatment. Plus, this is one of our ways of giving back.”
Participants of the Candy Buy Back receive a toothbrush and “BE JAWSOME” goodie bag. Kids will also have the opportunity to draw a picture or write a letter to service members to be included in the care packages. Dr. JAW Orthodontists will also be donating toothbrushes and dental floss to be included with the candy in the care packages going to our troops.
