Dr. Fred Dreher, a dentist in Ballston Spa, NY, is holding the annual Halloween Candy Buy-Back Program. Dr. Dreher will pay $1 per pound and give a prize to children under 14 who turn in their Halloween candy to the office. The candy is taken to the Family Readiness Group in Glens Falls to be included in holiday care packages for deployed service members. This is the seventh year Dr. Dreher’s office has held the buy-back.

Many children choose to donate their candy to the troops. Local schools, gyms, health clubs and other groups have been participating with the candy buy-back for years now. Last year, Dr. Dreher’s office collected over 300 pounds of candy for the troops. Before Dr. Dreher started the candy buy-back, the holiday care packages did not include much in the way of treats. Now, each package contains a nice treat bag and any leftovers are used for military family parties or veterans’ events. Of course, Dr. Dreher includes toothbrushes with the candy delivery.

Those interested in donating or collecting candy for this worthy cause, please call Dr. Dreher’s office at 518-885-6185 for more details. The candy buy-back runs from Nov. 4-15 this year. Donations of candy or other useful care package items will be accepted at any time. Please call the office before dropping off items to be sure someone will be there to receive them. Arrangements can be made for large quantities to be picked up.
