Bring your Halloween candy to any Kool Smiles dental office location beginning November 1st through the end of business on November 6th. You don't have to be a current patient to participate!
For every 25 pieces of candy you donate, Kool Smiles will give you a toy!*
Through Kool Smiles’ partnership with Operation Gratitude, the donated candy will be sent in care packages to our brave men and women serving overseas to remind them of home sweet home.
*All 123 Kool Smiles offices throughout the country are participating from opening time on November 1st until close of business on November 6th. Every child that takes part can receive one toy for every 25 pieces of unopened candy in its original intended packaging (individual sticks of gum, for example, will not be accepted). There is a limit of three toys per child and toys will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.
