Halloween candy buy back hosted by All Kids Dental

Have fun collecting your Halloween candy and then get paid for it while helping our troops. Bring in your Halloween Candy on Monday, Nov. 2, to All Kids Dental in Glenwood Springs or Rifle between 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. and get $1 for every pound of candy. All collected candy will be shipped to the troops overseas.

Plus you can enter to win an iPod Shuffle if you bring in new items for our troops, including socks (black, brown, green or tan), energy bars, beef jerky, individually packaged razors, hand or foot warmers, beverage powder packets and knit hats and scarves or visit to see more item options.

Have fun making a card for a solider to be sent with your candy. There will be prizes, free goodie bags and toothbrushes. Free shipping is supplied by FedEx.

All Kids Dental in Glenwood Springs is located upstairs in the ANB Bank Building at 2624 Grand Ave. The Rifle location is 900 Airport Road. All Kids Dental can be reached at 970-928-9500.
