Chandler, Arizona — Impressions Dental and Aspen Orthodontics of Chandler, Arizona, are partnering once again to host the Halloween Candy Buyback on November 1, 2018 from 3 to 7p.m. The entire community is invited to participate by bringing their Halloween candy to the Chandler dentist office of Impressions Dental at 5970 S. Cooper Road, Suite 1 in Chandler, AZ where it will be bought back from them.
Children will receive $1 for each pound of candy they bring in to sell. An additional 50 cents will be donated to a child’s school of choice for each pound of candy donated. All of the candy turned in at this year’s event will be donated to Operation Gratitude. The organization sends the candy to men and women in the military who are stationed overseas as a small gesture of gratitude for their sacrifice.
“This is the ninth year that we have the opportunity to do something for the Chandler community by hosting a day of fun, festivities and food for a good cause,” according to Dr. Brigham D. Baker of Impressions Dental. “I really love being able to support the troops and show them appreciation for everything they do for our country.” The event this year is expected to be bigger and better than ever.
The popularity of the annual Halloween candy buyback should continue this year with a bounce house, obstacle course, raffles and lots of prizes being given away. Entertainment in previous years has included balloon artists and music. Parents and children are invited to bring their appetites because of the different types of food that will be available thanks to Kona Ice, Waffle Crush Truck and the other vendors scheduled to set up in the Impressions Dental parking lot.
As in previous years, the emphasis from these Chandler pediatric dentists will be on having fun while taking positive steps toward reducing sugar consumption by children. Organizers of the candy buyback are reminding parents that only unopened candy will be accepted for donation.
