Dentists around West Michigan are offering to buy Halloween candy for as much as $2 per pound, then donate it to our troops overseas.

The Halloween Candy Buyback Program is a national program and has grown every year since it began in 2005. That growth has happened both nationally and locally.

The Halloween Candy Buyback Program has worked with Operation Gratitude, a group which sends care packages to military, to send over 130 tons of candy to our troops since the program started.

West Michigan offices vary in the hours they accept candy and the rewards that they offer.
