Greenlake Kids Dentistry, located in the Circa Green Lake building on the NW corner of NE Ravenna Blvd and Woodlawn Ave NE, is hosting their annual Halloween Candy Buy-Back program on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2011, 3-6 p.m.
Last year, the dentist office collected 150 pounds of candy to benefit Operation Gratitude. Operation Gratitude includes donated candy in care packages that they assemble and send to service members overseas.
This year, Greenlake Kids Dentistry hopes to collect 300 pounds of candy. The office will be accepting candy donations for the entire week following Halloween.
Seattle-area kids aged 12-and-under will be rewarded $1 per pound of unopened candy that they donate (up to to 10 pounds per person). Letters to service members will also be collected at the event. Kids must be accompanied by an adult.
“To see the generosity from the kids in our community inspired us last year,” Dr. Troy Hull said in a press release. “It’s amazing to see families pull together and donate candy for a great cause. Kids were genuinely excited to part with their candy knowing it would bring a smile to a serviceperson’s face.”
