If you’re not planning to sneak most of your kiddos’ candy for yourself, you might want to consider a candy buy back! Is this new to you? Basically, the idea is that area dentists will give your kids cold, hard cash in exchange for their candy! Now that’s a Sweet deal! All of these providers are donating the candy-the majority to our troops through Operation Gratitude.
Here are candy buyback options around the South Sound for 2016. We’ve provided links so you can confirm details before you head to swap our your treats for dollars!
Stop by any of the Molen locations with your wrapped trick-or-treating candy. In exchange, you’ll get paid $2 per pound up to 10 pounds! If you wear your costume, you’ll receive an extra $1, plus bring at least 2 canned food items and earn an additional $1! Tuesday, November 1, anytime between 2:30PM-6:30PM
Read on for participating dentists in Auburn, Lacey, Port Orchard, Burien, Bremerton, and Covington!
