Save your teeth, not candy
Submitted By Chong Orthodontics
Yes, candy is delicious, but itÕs also dangerous for our teeth. Too much of the sugary sweet treats can do a lot of damage. Chong Orthodontics is making an effort to reduce this problem by holding their first annual Halloween Candy Donation Drive.
Instead of overdosing on sugar, why not donate your extra candy to a good cause? Not only does it break braces and cause tooth decay, candy isn't nutritious and can affect your performance at school.
Here's how it works: bring your candy to their office the week after Halloween and theyÕll give you one dollar per pound of candy (up to a maximum of five pounds). As a thanks for donating, you'll receive a goodie bag and an entry into a special raffle. If your raffle ticket is selected, you'll get to spin their prize wheel for a chance to win a gift card to Gamestop, Best Buy, Jamba Juice, and more.
All candy collected will be donated to troops stationed overseas through Operation Gratitude. They also accept cards, letters of support, and other supplies. This Candy Donation Drive is open to all children and teens. You donÕt have to be a Chong Orthodontics patient to participate.
