Kalaheo Dental Group to to buy back Halloween candy

KALAHEO — For the fifth consecutive year, the Kalaheo Dental Group is buying back unopened candy from Halloween, which during this COVID-19 pandemic, is celebrated Saturday.

The buyback will be held Monday from 2 to 5 p.m., at the Kalaheo Dental Group offices with enhanced safety measures, such as wearing of face masks and social distancing being observed.

Unopened candy will be purchased at $1 per pound, to a maximum of five pounds per child. The buyback that also serves as an invitation for keiki to support the nation’s troops, will also earn eligibility for a prize drawing of a $100 Deja Vu Surf Hawai‘i gift certificate.

In previous events, the buyback not only served keiki, but families wishing to donate unopened candies for the troops.

The candy “bought back” will be sent to the county’s Armed Forces via Operation Gratitude through the help of The UPS Store Kaua‘i at the Kukui Grove Center.

Operation Gratitude distributes more than 300,000 individually-address Care Packages to soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and U.S. Coast Guardsmen deployed overseas, to their children left behind, and to First Responders, new recruits, veterans, Wounded Heroes, and their care givers.

The ‘ohana at Kalaheo Dental Group would like to extend their best wishes for a Happy Halloween with a reminder to take extra special care of your teeth during this fun holiday.
