SANDWICH – The Waters Dental Group will host its 12th annual "Halloween Candy Buy Back Program" a little differently this year.
There will be no in-person event, and it will be donation only. There will not be a cash buy back.
With the unknown planning of the trick-or-treating season, the Waters Dental Group wanted a way to save your teeth, but also treat and serve the troops.
The office is taking collections for candy, as well as deodorant, canned soup or chili, granola or protein bars, instant oatmeal packets, and canned fruit (no plastic cups).
All candy and necessities will be shipped to the troops with the help of Operation Care Package in Manhattan.
Visit the Waters Dental Group at 420 E. Church St. in Sandwich, Nov. 2 to 5, during normal business hours and drop off donations in the box outside the front door.
Everyone also is invited to bring colored pictures or write a note to include inside the care packages that are sent to the men and women serving our country. Include your name and address and you might just receive a return letter.
For more information, call 815-786-2146 or visit the Waters Dental Group on Facebook.
