If you’re feeling overwhelmed with candy after Halloween, Schultz Family Dentistry will take it off your hands!
On Monday, Schultz Family Dentistry collected candy from kids for a sweet trade of $2 per pound and for the chance to win a new bike.
The team collected candy to promote healthy oral hygiene, as well as for a great cause.
The candy collected will be sent to Operation Gratitude – a group that sends care packages to troops overseas.
Delila Healey, a dental assistant at Schultz, was involved with the project. “One of the things they are doing since its Halloween time is they are going to send a bunch of the candy over. We can send up to 50 pound packages at a time to them and then they repackage them and send them out. So, we will send toothbrushes, toothpaste, and a bunch of candy.”
Schultz had a great turn out – many kids were eager to give their candy away, with a total of 85 pounds collected.
