Sensational Smiles’ Halloween Candy Buy Back Event
Save Your Candy for our 5th annual Halloween Candy Buy Back Event, November 3rd, 8am-5:30pm. All of your candy we buy, will be shipped in Care Packages to our Troops through Operation Gratitude! We are paying your kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews $1 per pound for their Halloween Candy. In addition, this year we are stepping it up a notch with PRIZES! Bring the children in to enter to win a $30 gift card to Toys-R-Us or $30 in Movie Tickets. Our mascot Sensational Sammie will be present handing out Firefly tooth brushes and balloons. This is a great experience for everyone and tells the men and women serving our country we are thinking about them. Since 2003 Operation Gratitude has shipped out over 1 million care packages to our troops. Our Halloween Candy Buy Back -and many like our’s across the nation- are a vital part of the success of this non-profit program. Your candy helps to add a sweet treat to the care packages our troops receive.
Americans will spend about 2 billion dollars on candy this Halloween. That is a lot of sugar your little Trick-or-Treaters are going to be bringing home. While they will have a blast filling their treat bags, consuming such large amounts of sweets is not good for their overall health, not to mention their teeth. Our Halloween Candy Buy Back is a great way for kids to still enjoy trick-or-treating and learn about giving back to the men and women that serve their country.
So, as you are getting the children’s costumes ready for Friday night, tell them about our Halloween Candy Buy Back Event. Not only will we buy their candy for a $1 per lb to send to our troops, but they can enter to win prizes, see Sensational Sammie and receive a balloon and a Firefly Tooth Brush!
Hope to see you November 3rd!
P.S. Help us spread the word of this fun and worthy event.
