SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Scarsdale Dentist Moshe Glick is sponsoring a "candy buyback" where kids can turn in their excess trick or treat candy and get $1 per pound (up to $5) in return. The candy will then be donated to U.S. soldiers serving abroad.
"Kids tend to overdo it on Halloween with candy, which is supposed to be an occasional treat, and not consumed by the pound," Glick said in a statement. "Through this project, we are encouraging kids to adopt better oral health habits. In addition to limiting the amount of sugary snacks consumed, we provide a free toothbrush and oral home care instruction.
“Equally important, through Operate Gratitude, we are providing a small treat and a boost of morale to U.S. soldiers aboard, who are risking their lives everyday to serve this country. Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, with a little extra cash on hand."
The Candy must be unopened and can be returned to Glick's Scarsdale location on Friday, Nov. 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Glick's office is located at 495 Central Park Avenue in Scarsdale.
