Excess of Halloween candy can be donated to soldiers, veterans

Looking for an alternative to gorging on Halloween candy?

You can donate candy at his office on November 1-2 from 8 a.m.to 4 p.m. This month, if your kids bring in one full, sandwich-sized bag of candy to one of these locations, they will get a $5 Target gift card.

Kool Smiles in Fort Smith is asking families to bring their extra treats to their office so they can ship them overseas to our troops so they can enjoy a sweet treat too.

Kool Smiles at 1852 Bluffton Road will collect trick-or-treat candy from children in exchange for a toy.




All the candy brought to Kool Smiles will be sent in care packages to USA troops overseas who can't be home for the holidays.

Candy can be turned in from November 1-11 from Monday-Thursday 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., Friday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., and Saturday 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. The candy will also be sent to troops through Operation Gratitude.

Surf City Dental is holding its seventh annual candy buy-back event. "Kids don't really need ten pounds of candy so it's nice to get that out of their hands", Harper said, "As you know, candy causes cavities, it contributes to childhood obesity, and the program really gives everybody an opportunity to show the troops how much we appreciate them".
