MOVE AMERICA FORWARD JOINS NATIONAL HALLOWEEN BUY BACK PROGRAM TO SEND HALLOWEEN CARE PACKAGES TO DEPLOYED TROOPS OVERSEAS
SACRAMENTO, CA., – Move America Forward is partnering with a national effort, the Halloween Candy Buyback Program, which brings together Dentists, Orthodontists, and other Oral healthcare professionals from around the country with the goal of getting candy to our troops.
“Move America Forward is a welcome addition to the Halloween Candy Buyback. Having a second candy distribution partner will allow more health organizations in the West coast participate in this great event.” said Dr. Chris Kammer, D.D.S, who is Founder of the official Halloween Candy Buyback. “At a time when childhood obesity is not improving in our country, programs like the Halloween Candy Buyback are needed more than ever.”
Halloween is a holiday known for overconsumption of sweet treats which can cause damage to braces and result in tooth decay. The Halloween Candy Buyback encourages families to turn in their excess candy to a local participating school or oral health professional’s office. Some offices will make cash donations to local schools for the candy which will be used in Move America Forward care packages to the troops.
Thousands of brave soldiers, marines, sailors, and airmen will benefit from receiving a care package from home with a little Halloween spirit inside. Move America Forward sends thousands of care packages a year to troops in war zones and wherever our troops are in need. The Halloween candy from participants of the Halloween Candy Buyback Program will increase the number of packages Move America Forward is able to ship this year.
For more information see http://www.halloweencandybuyback.com or send your candy directly to the Move America Forward Operation Center at 3105 Fite Circle, Suite 108, Sacramento CA 95827.
