Cash For Candy


WAUSAU (WAOW)--Halloween means treats for children. But dentists say the sugar from all those traditional candies can play tricks on young teeth.

 That's why some dental offices feature buy-back programs.

 The Quirt Dental Offices have set up a cash for candy project.

  At the Weston location, children 12 and under can bring in individually wrapped candy,  November 1st ( from 4-6 PM). They will be paid a dollar a pound for the sweets. The donated candy will then be shipped by Tomahawk postal workers to U.S. troops serving overseas. In addition, the dental offices will match the monetary candy payout's and make donations to food pantries throughout the area.

  Quirt has locations in Weston, Wausau, Merrill, Edgar, Plover and Wittenberg.
