This is a good deal all around — send extra Halloween candy the kids collected to our U. S. troops deployed overseas. It’s called the Halloween Candy Buy Back program, and it’s a nationwide program that includes participating dentists, who buy the candy back at $1 a pound.
The kids get money for their candy, and our U.S. troops get shipments from home.
When the dentists collect candy, it’s called the Buy Back Program. When it’s sent to our soldiers overseas, it’s called Operation Gratitude. Here’s a video, featuring one of my favorite performers, country star Toby Keith, on how this program works.
