Travelle Family Dentistry & Orthodontics of Burien holding Candy Buy Back Nov. 1

TravelleCandyBuyback

Join Travelle Family Dentistry and Orthodontics of Burien for their First Annual Halloween Candy Buy Back on Saturday, Nov. 1.

It’ll take place from 2:30 – 5:30 p.m. at Travelle Family Dentistry, in south Burien, just north of Key Bank and across the street from Dunn Lumber.

Dr. Daniel Travelle, Dr. Katie McKay Travelle and Dr. Jorge Peralta want your help in supporting our troops.

“We will be purchasing children’s unwanted, wrapped candy at $1 per pound, up to 10 pounds per child, and will send it to our troops via Holiday care packages,” Dr. Travelle said.

Kids who turn in their unwanted candy will also have a chance to win prizes and will receive goodie bags for their teeth (think toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and more).

Children who come in their best, spookiest and most original costume get the chance to win a $100 gift card!

The care packages will be sent overseas by Operation Gratitude, a 501(c)(3), non-profit, volunteer-based organization that annually sends 100,000 care packages filled with snacks, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation addressed to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed in hostile regions, to their children left behind and to Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors and their Care Givers.

Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1,000,000 packages to American Military members and their children.

“We are seeking prizes and donations for this event,” Dr. Travelle said. “Any contribution your business can make would be greatly appreciated!”
