You could earn a little money and support U.S. Troops by bringing your Halloween candy to Las Vegas Braces.
As part of Operation Gratitude, the candy buy back program is offering $1 for every pound of candy brought into any Las Vegas Braces location during business hours. The candy is then placed in care packages, along with other items like DVDs and hygiene products, and shipped out to U.S. Military serving abroad.
The orthodontics office collected over 780 pounds of candy in 2015.
Operation Gratitude has shipped more than 1.6 million care packages to U.S. troops, according to founder Carolyn Blashek.
