Just as we did last Halloween, everyone here at Advanced Dental Care of Springfield will be putting our money where our mouths are by participating in Operation Gratitude, the Halloween Candy Buyback program to help support our military personnel serving overseas.
This program gives trick-or-treaters the opportunity to exchange some or all of their Halloween haul for cash. The collected candy will then be sent to Operation Gratitude in California where it will be sorted and repackaged and then distributed to troops serving overseas.
Each child is eligible to receive $1 per pound, up to a five (5) pound limit, for all unopened, uneaten candy. We also encourage the children to draw pictures and/or write letters or notes to include in the packages to our troops.
We will be collecting the candy on Tuesday, November 3rd from 9:00 am until 7:00 pm. Plus, there will be door prizes and raffle prizes when you come drop off your candy!
If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office at (217) 717-4551 or visit our Facebook page HERE.
