Halloween Candy Swap Helps Overseas Military and Kids Teeth

By Barbara Ann Kelley, CBSTampa.com

Are you worried your kids teeth are going to rot from all the Halloween candy they have?  A free Halloween Candy Swap on Thursday, November 3 in Clearwater will hopefully take the nightmare out of you kids next trip to the Dentist.

Candy heavy kids ages 17 and younger can take their excess Halloween sugary loot to the Long Center in Clearwater and swap it for teeth friendly items.

Each pound of candy earns one entry ticket for chances to win a new bike, a Play Pass, or tickets to an upcoming Bucs game.

An extra entry can be earned by bringing in a thank you letter to overseas U.S. Service men and women.

All the Candy collected at the swap will be sent to U.S. troops through Operation Gratitude.

Many Tampa Bay Dentists are also participating in a Halloween Candy Buy Back. To find the Dentist in your area click this link.
