Ballston Spa, NY (PRWEB) September 27, 2012
Fred Dreher, DDS, a trusted dental practice in Ballston Spa, New York, recently announced that they will be holding their annual Halloween candy buy back program from November 1-November 15, 2012. The program allows children to sell or donate their Halloween candy to the dental office in exchange for a goodie bag. The collected candy is sent to American serviceman who are deployed to Afghanistan and other locations overseas.
"Last year we collected over 300 pounds of candy," said the staff at Dr. Fred Dreher's office. "We will buy the candy from children under the age of 16 for $1.00 per pound, and will also accept donations of candy. (Most of our candy last year came from donations!) Each child who donates or sells us their candy will receive a goodie bag. We, of course, send toothbrushes and toothpaste to the soldiers along with the candy!"
The candy and dental care items are donated to American soldiers through the Family Readiness Group in Glen Falls, New York, which sends holiday care packages. The Family Readiness Group supports families of New York Army National Guard Soldiers, promoting morale for both families and soldiers while they are overseas. Dr. Fred Dreher's office will also accept donations toward shipping, which will also be forwarded to the group.
"We are proud to support members of the U.S. military who are serving in Afghanistan," said Dr. Fred Dreher, DDS. "We have received overwhelming support from the schools and community for the candy buy back initiative in previous years and we look forward to making a generous donation to the Family Readiness Group again this year."
