Thank YOU for YOUR Service! Veterans Day 2018
November 11, is Veterans Day, with the Federal Holiday being observed on November 12, 2018. Use this opportunity to thank all of those who have served the greatest nation on earth. To all of our Veterans, we at Move America Forward say “Thank You!” Your sacrifice and service has kept us safe at home. Please take the time to thank your friends, co-workers or loved ones this year who have served our country. In honor of America’s brave veterans, please take the time to fly your flag with PRIDE.
“How does Veterans Day Differ from Memorial Day?”
Veterans Day is sometimes confused with Memorial Day, however, Veterans Day honors the service of all U.S. military veterans, whereas Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for the the men and women who gave their lives in service.
Scary Good Halloween Treats for our Troops!
Halloween Candy Buyback: MAF Honored Top Recipient of 2018
Oral Health Professionals and Schools Turn Extra Candy into Cash for Schools and Sweet Treats for Troops Overseas via MAF Care Packages
Move America Forward has been named as the primary resource for a national effort which brings together Dentists, Orthodontists, and other Oral healthcare professionals from around the country, partnering with local schools for an innovative Halloween Candy Buy Back Program that benefits schools as well as our troops overseas
“Move America Forward impressed us with their transparency and mission after their first 2 years participating in the Halloween Candy Buyback. We are proud to make them our primary resource in this great event, and glad to send candy and oral care products to our troops who really appreciate the support.” said Dr. Chris Kammer, D.D.S, who is Founder of the national Halloween Candy Buyback initiative. “At a time when the problem of early childhood tooth decay and obesity is getting worse in our country, programs like the Halloween Candy Buyback are needed more than ever.”
Halloween is a holiday known for over-consumption 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.
Hundreds of brave soldiers, sailors, marines 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.
Parents can find a list of participating dentist offices by visiting www.halloweencandybuyback.com and entering your zip code. Contact one of the listed offices to find out when you can drop off your candy for donation. Families are encouraged to bring their extra candy into one of these locations or encourage your local dentist office to contact the Halloween Buyback Program to sign up as a participant.
