Hand Over Extra Halloween Candy For Good Deed

Here Is How To Use Leftover Halloween Candy

Whether your trick or treater came home with more candy than you ever imagined, or you bought a huge abundance of candy expecting more trick or treaters than you got, you can use that extra Halloween Candy for good.

The Halloween Candy Buy Back program is an incentive to bring good from the left over candy. The program offers money, prizes and other giveaways in exchange for extra candy.

All of the candy collected is donated to Soldier’s Angels, a nonprofit organization that supports the troops. Soldier’s Angels will sort the candy and ship it in holiday care packages to troops over seas.

Dentist offices across the Tampa Bay region will participate in the buy back program during the first week of November.
