Save Some Halloween Candy for Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude will send your halloween treats to our US troops overseas.  If you don’t have time to stop by one of Operation Gratitude locations, or would rather put together your own care package, mail your candy to Operation Shoebox. Every year, Operation Shoebox sends TONS of candy to our troops and they would be more than happy to take your treats this year.

Keith B. Wong, DDS, MS Specialist in Orthodontics
Once again, Dr. Keith B. Wong will be collecting your unopened treats after Halloween. And this year, Dr. Wong will be teaming up with Rocket Taco on Capitol Hill for his annual candy buy back. Dr. Wong will be purchasing your unwrapped candy at $1 per pound for Operation Gratitude’s holiday care packages. Kids who turn in their unwanted treats will also receive goodie bags (think toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and other non-candy treats). In addition to selling back candy, Dr. Wong is encouraging kids to write letters and/or draw pictures to send to the troops overseas.

When: November 2, 2019 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at Rocket Taco on Capitol Hill
