COLUMBUS, Ga. – Kool Smiles Dentistry is collecting Halloween candy for “Operation Troop Treats”. They are collecting Halloween candy to send to troops overseas.
Collecting left over candy from trick-or-treaters helps children cutback on sugar getting in their teeth while letting our troops know we are thinking about them at the same time.
One dentist said they really enjoy helping the local community.
“We have so many people involved in the military. The kids, it really hits home with them that they can share their candy with a friend’s mom or dad or aunt or uncle that they can send their candy to,” Dr. Abigail Adams said.
Kool Smiles is giving out prizes to anyone who donates 25 pieces of candy.
Last year, all the Kool Smiles across the country collected two tons of candy. This is Kool Smiles fourth year doing “Operation Troop Treats”.
The Columbus Kool Smiles will be collecting candy through Wednesday, November 4.
