This week brings an opportunity for kids to share some of their Halloween treasure with our troops while earning a little money too.

Halloween Candy Buy Back is a national program which allows kids to earn money for donating Halloween candy to our troops. The program started in 2005 and works with Operation Gratitude. Tons of candy is delivered to our troops each year.

Dentist offices around the country participate with most offering $1 per pound of candy up to five pounds. Some other businesses join in too.
