Too much sugar can be a scary thing after Halloween.

A popular program, which started in 2005 and continues to grow each year, allows kids to earn cash for donating Halloween candy to our troops.

The Halloween Candy Buy Back is a national program which has worked with Operation Gratitude to send tons of candy to our troops.

Kids can show their support by donating as much or as little of their Halloween candy as they would like to.

Most participating locations pay $1 per pound of candy with a limit on the number of pounds that can be redeemed for cash. Some locations offer additional activities for kids to enjoy as they turn in their candy.

You'll find several West Michigan dental offices and other locations participating in the Halloween Candy Buy Back program. Those below are listed on the Halloween Candy Buy Back website. Find hours, activities, cash paid out and more through the links.
