Halloween Candy Buy-Back with Smiles by Payet

Get the scoop on how your kids can get cash for candy in the Halloween Candy Buy-Back!

Trick or Treat

We Trick or Treated at the Promenade Shopping Center last Friday.  Tomorrow is Halloween and Trick or Treat in Charlotte, which means even more candy!  I already know we will not be able to eat all that candy.

Trick or Treat

Usually we save a few pieces and either have my husband take the rest to work or simply through it away. This year however, we’re taking the leftover candy to the dentist. Yes, you read that correctly!

This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Smiles by Payet Family Dentistry in south Charlotte and receive $1 per pound – up to $5 maximum.  Candy will be collected at Smiles by Payet Family Dentistry, 4601 Park Rd. Ste. 175 in south Charlotte on Saturday, November 1st from 10:00am – 2:00pm.  The candy must be unopened and children must be accompanied by an adult.

The candy is shipped to an organization dedicated to serving our troops, called Operation Gratitude.  Volunteers there send the candy and other items to be delivered to troops overseas in holiday care packages. Kids that come to this event are also invited to make cards for the care packages.

Good deeds.  Cash.  Goody bags.  And a plan to rid ourselves of all that left over candy!

  1. Our orthodontist does a buy-back each year and gives our gift cards to local businesses in exchange for candy. My girls now go out for extra just to get more $$$!

  2. Hi Sarah – it was great meeting you today, and thank you so much for helping to spread the word. 🙂 I’ll be writing up a blog post about it tomorrow with a whole bunch of pictures and the final numbers, and I’ll ping you on it. 🙂 Your 2 girls are just so ADORABLE!
