Annual Candy Buyback Campaign
Give back by donating your Halloween candy to the troops!
We are hosting the Operation Gratitude Candy Buyback campaign for the 6th year in a row! We will pay $1 per pound (up to 5 pounds) for unopened Halloween candy. The candy donations will be sent to our troops serving at home and abroad via Operation Gratitude.
Operation Gratitude annually sends 200,000+ care packages to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes, their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home. Each package is filled with food, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, as well as personal letters of support. Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of the Military and First Responder communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for civilians anywhere in America to express their appreciation to all who serve our nation. Each package contains donated product valued between $45 and $100 and costs our organization $15 to assemble and ship. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1.6 Million Care Packages.
Last year, Operation Gratitude received a record-setting 533,891 pounds of candy! We want to help them smash that record again this year!
“We are very excited to be hosting this event again this year. Our troops deserve all of the recognition they can get and we are looking forward to sending the candy,” says Dr. Bobbi Stanley of Stanley Dentistry.
The leftover Halloween candy can be dropped off on Monday, November 2nd between 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm at our office. Follow along on Facebook to see how much we raised!
Dr. Bobbi, Dr. Rob, Dr. Evie, and the entire Stanley Dentistry staff hope to see you there! Please call us at 919-261-5850 if you have any questions!View All News
