Halloween Candy Buy Back in Swansboro
Halloween is over and your kids probably have more candy than they know what to do with. This could be the perfect opportunity to teach your children the importance of giving. A fairly new program called Halloween Candy Buy Back in Swansboro is spreading across the nation. This organization invites dentists to hold Candy Buy Back programs that pay kids for their Halloween candy and then send it to troops overseas. The program has expanded since it first began in 2005.
The Halloween Candy Buy Back (HCBB) has now partnered with Operation Gratitude, an organization that sends care packages to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors, and to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed overseas. The HCBB has invited dentists nationwide to get involved. Dentist offices pay kids for their candy and then mail off the collected candy to Operation Gratitude. There is even a participating dentist right here in Swansboro at Conley Dentistry.
As a parent, this is a great opportunity to help teach your children about appreciating others and giving. This process in beneficial in three ways. First it teaches children the importance of dental hygiene. Just by going into the dentist office, you can turn it into an educational opportunity to teach your kids why going to the dentist is so important. Second, it teaches the joy you feel when you help others. It helps them understand what doing good for others means. It also has the added bonus of earning a few dollars which is always exciting for young kids. They learn the value of things and how money works.
The Halloween Candy Buy Back has many benefits and makes a winner out of everyone involved. It teaches kids a variety of valuable lessons and gives our troops a little treat and gift of thanks from home. If you want to participate head over to Conley Dentistry or call them with any further questions.
