If you’re like Sam and me….and have lots of candy left over because so few trick or treaters showed up…you can of course take it to work..or you can take it to the Candy exchange today….sweets for treats from 3-30 to 6..
Two drop off locations.. at the Childrens Dental Center of San Jose at Tropicana Center 1153 S. King Road in San Jose or the Childrens Dental Center of Sunnyvale 897 W. El Camino Real. All the candy they get will be given to Operation Gratitude which assembles care packages for troops overseas. Great idea!!!!
First 5 Santa Clara County actually set this up to encourage your kids to exchange their Halloween candy for different types of treats. If you’ve never heard of First 5 , its a great agency here that focuses on the health and safety of kids…and of course “too much sugar” and obesity is one of their big issues.
SO bring your kids down with their candy…they get a goodie bag and also for every pound of candy…they get a raffle ticket. And at the King Road site…theyre going to have music, games, face painting and story time from Potter the Otter! Our kids get so much candy they can part with some of it..especially with it all going to our troops!!!
