Get the scoop on how your kids can get cash for candy in the Halloween Candy Buy-Back!
We Trick or Treated at the Promenade Shopping Center last Friday. I’ve purchased more candy than I probably needed to for Halloween. And, my kids are already working on the perfect route for massive candy collection on Friday night. I have a feeling come Saturday morning, we are going to have more candy than any family of five would ever need.
I am all for having fun on Halloween. Last week, it melted my heart everytime my three-year-old black ninja got candy in his bucket. He’d pluck it out proudly and exclaim, “Look mom! I got (insert chocolate-covered deliciousness)! Are we gonna get more?” And, I’d delight him by saying, “Yes. Of course. Let’s keep going.
I’m sure I’ll do the same this Friday, too. And, I’m gonna let them eat their little sugar-loving hearts out on Friday. But, come Saturday….
Whatever candy fits into our usual treat bucket stays. The rest? We’re taking to the dentist. Yep.
This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Smiles by Payet Family Dentistry in south Charlotte and receive $1 per pound – up to $5 maximum. Candy will be collected at Smiles by Payet Family Dentistry, 4601 Park Rd. Ste. 175 in south Charlotte on Saturday, November 1st from 10:00am – 2:00pm. The candy must be unopened and children must be accompanied by an adult.
The candy is shipped to an organization dedicated to serving our troops, called Operation Gratitude. Volunteers there send the candy and other items to be delivered to troops overseas in holiday care packages. Kids that come to this event are also invited to make cards for the care packages.
Good deeds. Cash. Goody bags. A little less sugar in the house. Let’s just say, I think those are all a good thing!
