Send Halloween candy to troops overseas

Posted: Updated:
GLENDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

Wondering what to do with all that candy your children pick up trick or treating or have left over at your home? You can donate it to troops overseas.

This year, at least 20 Valley dentist offices are buying candy by the pound and shipping it to U.S. troops.

AZ Cosmetics and Family Dentistry in Glendale said the Halloween Candy Buyback Program teaches children about service and giving back.

Also in the Valley, Southwest Ambulance teams up with Operation Gratitude to collect Halloween candy to include in care packages for troops.

In 2010, Southwest Ambulance collected 663 pounds of candy and 150 letters for Operation Gratitude, which is a nonprofit organization based out of the Army National Guard Armory in Van Nuys, CA.

People are encouraged to write letters to send along with their candy, which will be shipped to Operation Gratitude on Veterans Day.

Here is a list of Valley locations participating in the program:
