This year, Winning Smiles’ Annual Halloween Candy Buy-Back will be held at both the Orchard Park and Amherst locations on November 2nd from 4 PM to 8 PM. Each year the final weigh-in of candy grows and grows, making our shipment of candy to Packs4Patriots an important contribution that helps them achieve their mission. Packs4Patriots is a non-profit organization in North Carolina that supports our troops overseas, by assembling and shipping care packages filled with hygiene products, non-perishable foods, fresh socks, cards and letters, and of course some sweet treats collected from you!

We are especially excited about this event, because it helps to educate the children of our community and their families about the dangers of overconsumption of sugar, all while bringing smiles to our troops. Children who attend the event will receive $1 for each pound of candy redeemed, a free toothbrush, a small prize and a chance to win exciting door prizes! Additionally, children are invited to create cards and letters to be sent with the care packages, and enjoy entertainment from master balloon artists.

Please help us reach our candy collection goal of 5,000 pounds by dropping by our Amherst or Orchard Park offices on Monday November 2 between 4 PM and 8 PM!
