Halloween Candy for Heroes! - A Great Use of Your Extra Halloween Candy

Bonfires were lit on All Hallow's Eve to keep the evil spirits and ghosts away

Looking for an alternative to gorging on Halloween candy? Local dentists have an idea for you, and it's to give the candies to those who serve our country.

Kool Smiles' "Operation Troop Treats" is in full effect now through Saturday, November 4 in an effort for local children to give back to USA troops overseas. The goal of the buy-backs is to help avoid obesity, diabetes and tooth decay, while offering troops overseas some sweet treats from home.

Now that Halloween is behind us, some parents may wonder what they should do with their kids leftover candy.

Kool Smiles at 1852 Bluffton Road will collect trick-or-treat candy from children in exchange for a toy.

The candy that is collected will be sent in care packages to troops overseas.
