Halloween Candy Buy-Back Locations in McHenry County

Give Back

Halloween isn’t even here yet and I can already feel the weight of candy overload! Halloween parties, events, trick-or-treating, and leftover candy from your own bowl usually excite the children to no end. Unfortunately, these large amounts of candy usually overwhelm well-meaning parents. In order to keep the sweet treats in moderation, you may need to find a new home for some of the goodies. Read on for sweet ways to make everyone smile!

Check our list for a participating location near you. Most are dentists and orthodontic offices who use this program as a great way to promote oral health and provide our soldiers with a treat and a smile. You can also send candy directly to soldiers — see the information below.
