Dental office in Macon wants Halloween candy for U.S. troops
Macon Kool Smiles is offering toys in exchange for Halloween candy
Macon Kool Smiles Dental office is offering toys in exchange for Halloween candy.
It's part of operation troop treats.
The program gives kids a chance to send their halloween candy to troops overseas.
The dental team called it a win-win for everyone involved.
Doctor Ronique Keane-Dawes said children are giving up their candy for a good cause all while learning good dental hygiene.
"As dental care professionals, we educate and promote healthy smiles for our patients," said Keane-Dawes. "So, with our children bringing in candy, we're trying to teach them that healthy smiles create a healthy you, and it also helps our troops overseas."
Children can drop off their candy Thursday through Saturday at Macon Kool Smiles during office hours.
Every child receives one toy for 25 pieces of candy but there is a limited of three toys per child.
