That’s the incentive dentists, physical therapists and other healthcare practitioners are giving to kids who donate a portion of their treats after the costumed chaos subsides.
According to the New York Post, candy buy-back programs are a nationwide initiative. Wisconsin-based dentist Dr. Chris Kammer started the website HalloweenCandyBuyBack.com in 2005 partnering with nearly 10,000 doctors’ offices across the country from New York to Dallas, Chicago and Florida since its inception.
Offices donate candy to veterans by simply paying $1 for every pound of candy a child brings into their respective offices. To date, they’ve donated an estimated 1.7 million pounds. Children are encouraged to leave a sweet note to sends to soldiers with the treats.
