Did your kids collect way too much Halloween candy? Do you really want them (or you) eating it through Christmas?
Why not donate it to our troops overseas by dropping it off to Dr. Michael S. Stosich at iDentity Orthodontics in Grayslake?
"Starting Nov. 1 through Nov. 8, we are buying back new, unopened candy for $1 per pound up to 5 pounds per person," said Dana Ellicson, treatment and marketing coordinator at iDentity Orthodontics.
Children will also receive a new toothbrush for their donation.
Ellicson said students at St. Gilbert Catholic School are also donating their Halloween candy to the cause, which will help the troops and their school. Dr. Stosich will give the school $1 per pound of candy that is donated by the students.
Participating dentists and orthodontists like Dr. Stosich will mail the candy to Operation Gratitude/California Army National Guard by way of the national Halloween Candy Buyback Program, based in California.
iDentity Orthodontics is located at 1275 E. Belvidere Road, Suite 100, in Grayslake. Hours vary, so call (847) 548-4200 before heading over with your candy donations.
