Local dentist clinic to help cut down on candy consumption


Children can drop off candy at Lima Road Dentistry at 9019 Lima Road on Wednesday from 8 a.m.to 4:30 p.m., on Thursday from 7 a.m.to 6:30 p.m. and Friday from 7 a.m.to noon.

Every child who donates 25 pieces of unopened candy will receive a toy.

Several organizations have agreed to accept excess Halloween candy from kids to share with troops and veterans. "They do care packages all during the year especially around the holidays when our troops are not home with their families".

MA residents have spoken and Almond Joy is their least favorite candy to receive on Halloween.

Nearly half of Americans think media make up stories about Pres
A new survey showed that almost half of Americans believed that the media fabricated stories about President Donald Trump . The President tweeted last week, questioning what could be done to revoke the licenses of broadcast media outlets.

At Kool Smiles, "Operation Troop Treats" is underway, encouraging kids to donate their candy to then be given to US troops.

"We're getting a little bit of candy out of the kids hands as well as getting it to people that don't get a lot of candy all the time", Gold said.

Shah says this is important to her because it shows troops we're thinking about them at other times besides Christmas. From there, the donated candy and dental care packages will be sent to the troops. The Lake Charles office collected 53 pounds of candy, and he's hoping it collects more than 60 pounds this year.
