Two dentists’ offices offer cash for excess Halloween candy

From Staff Reports

Got too much candy? A couple of local dentists’ offices are willing to take it off your hands.

They’re paying $1 a pound to trick-or-treaters willing to part with part of their hauls the day after Halloween. The candy will be shipped to troops. Children are also invited to create cards or letters to send to members of the military.

“The candy is only a portion of the contents of the packages, and I’m sure the troops are sharing with their fellow service members,” Dr. Jared Evans, of KiDDS Dental, said in a news release. “I’m also aware of candy being used to make friends with the children where the troops are stationed.”

Unopened candy can be dropped off Thursday:

• From 4 to 7 p.m. at KiDDS Dental, 1327 N. Stanford Lane, Suite B, in Liberty Lake.

• From 3 to 6 p.m. at South Hill Pediatric Dentistry, 2020 E. 29th Ave.
