Everybody loves Halloween candy. Seriously, I have already gone through half a bag of Kit Kats that I have saved for trick-or-treaters. Instead of eating all the candy, you can donate it to a great cause.

Kool Smiles has partnered with Operation Gratitude for Operation Troop Treats.  They will send Halloween candy to our troops overseas in care packages.  The nice people at Kool Smiles is asking that folks come to their Jewella and Mansfield locations to donate their candy in exchange for a toy. The rule they have in place is that each child will receive a toy in exchange for twenty five pieces of unopened candy. The maximum amount of toys a child can receive is three. This is an awesome way to give back to the men and women who are putting it all on the line for us as well as to teach your children about giving back.

Kool Smiles will be taking donations until Saturday, November 3rd during their business hours. They are open from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday.
