Kool Smiles is coordinating “Operation Troop Treats” to encourage children to bring Halloween candy to the dental office in exchange for a toy.
Children will receive one toy for every 25 pieces of unopened candy donated in its original packaging, according to a news release.
There is a limit of three toys per child, and toys will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
The dental offices, at 3864 Texas Highway 64 West or 1932 ESE Loop 323 in Tyler, will accept the candy for one week starting on Wednesday and ending Nov. 5.
The candy will be sent in care packages through Operation Gratitude to U.S. troops serving overseas. Visit www.mykoolsmiles.com/trooptreats for more information.
