Welcome to “Operation Cash-For-Candy”, the Tri-Cities newest way to fight the war on Halloween candy overload and tooth cavities, plus a great way to say thanks to the brave men and women serving our country.
During the first week of November, area healthcare offices will be “buying back” your children’s uneaten, unwrapped “leftover” Halloween candy. All the candy that is “bought back” will be shipped overseas to our troops. Children and parents will also have the opportunity to sign cards for our troops as well.
When you stop in we will pay your little ones $1 per pound of candy they donate. They can choose to keep the money or donate it back to help pay for shipping the candy to the soldiers. Plus – they will also be registered to win a Toys R Us gift card, an iPod, and other prizes.
Each office will have their own drop off days andtimes so be sure to click on one of the participating office links on the right to get times and office drop off locations and driving directions. Reminders and news announcements will be made through the local media,so mark this event on your calendars and remember to join us in showing our appreciation for the troops
