Just wanted to thank all those who brought in candy after Halloween to our dental office. We were honored to be mentioned in an article in the Salt Lake Tribune detailing our efforts. The article also had some helpful hints for enjoying candy and avoiding cavities. This was our first year and we were surprised how many people brought candy in. I learned of one dentist in the midwest whos dental office collected over 1400 pounds of candy. Our office was nowhere close to that, but with your help we were able to make a sizable donation of candy and goodies to operation gratitude. Operation gratitude will then create care packages and send those to our troops serving overseas. They have a great site with some very moving thank-you letters from recipients of the care packages. There were some that even suggested that the donations of candy save lives, as children are anxious to help them out as thanks for giving them candy. It’s nice to know that children everyhwere (and adults too) can be bribed with chocolate. So thanks again for all your donations. Maybe next year we’ll beat 1400 pounds. 🙂
