Queen Anne Dentists’ Candy Buyback a Success – Kids Get Cash, Troops Get Care Packages
Posted on November 5th, 2012 by Laura Fonda
As reported last week, local Queen Anne dentist practices participated in the Halloween Candy Buyback program, offering cash for candy that goes into care packages for troops via Operation Gratitude. Little Pearls Kids Dentistry, Smiles by Smita Orthodontics, and Seattle Kids Dentistry participated and collected a grand total of nearly 250 pounds of candy.
Seattle Kids Dentistry collected 100 pounds of candy and took the opportunity to educate kids on good dental health and enjoying sweets in moderation. Kids left with not only cash, but also toothbrushes and prizes in exchange for their donations.
