Your kids don't need to eat all that candy they haul in tonight, do they?
(And, us Moms, don't need it around either, do we? Come on, confess! How many times have you dipped into your kids' Halloween stash for that mini Snickers or the bag of peanut M&Ms--or whatever your candy poison is...)
Dentist Julie Greenlaw-O'Toole is offering kids $1 per pound of their trick-or-treat candy, and she will then box up the candy and send it to troops serving overseas. Greenlaw-O'Toole says this is the second year she's done the buyback program.
(A tangent: Did you know that $2.3 billion in Halloween candy was expected to be sold in the past week? Or 600 million pounds? )
Back Dr. Greenlaw-O'Toole's sweet, worthwhile deal: Her Halloween buyback program takes place at her office 3 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, and is for kids younger than 12. Kids can also write a personal note to include in the box of candy sent.
Her office is at 1479 Ygnacio Valley Road, No. 203. For more information, call her office at (925) 934-1340.
