3 Wonderful Ways to Give Back After Halloween
Most kids look forward to dressing up and enjoying candy on Halloween every year, but many adults wish there was something more to it than the costly costumes and indulgent treat consumption. And even though most don’t associate October as a season for giving, it turns out this holiday is the perfect time to make charitable efforts. Here are 3 wonderful ways to give back after Halloween.
1.) Give candy to the troops: Send candy to the troops. Many dental offices in the Valley participate in post-Halloween candy buybacks. Donated sweets are sent to organizations such as Operation Gratitude or Operation Shoebox and the candy is sent in care packages for U.S. soldiers in harm’s way.
2.) Donate your costumes: Purchase or donate your gently-used Halloween costumes to a local to Goodwill or Salvation Army. A portion of their costume sales help fund job training programs and other community-based programs.
3.) Halloween candy buy back: Dentist offices around the valley buy back kids’ Halloween candy at a scheduled event with cash, xylitol products, coupons, toothbrushes, creative exchanges – They can partner with local businesses to give away coupons for food, services, goods, etc. They can give away hygiene kits or coupons for their office as well!

Why should Thanksgiving and Christmas get all the attention as the holidays of giving back? There are lots of creative ways to give back this Halloween so get into the “spirit” of the season and look for fun ways you can give back to your community and local charities.
