Concerned Dental Care of Port Jefferson will be working with the Three Village Girl Scouts to offer a Candy Buyback Program. Have your kids bring their candy in during office hours between 11/1-11/9 and they will receive $1 for every pound of candy.
The Girl Scouts will then take the candy and be distributing it to several Organizations. They will donate some of it to Operation Veronica, a volunteer organization in Rocky Point that is led by Janet Godfrey. The women there assemble care packages weekly for the troops stationed in Afghanistan. Some of the donated candy will also go to the Jacob’s Light Foundation in Ronkonkoma, who also send care packages to the troops. The Girl Scouts from Setauket will use the rest of the candy to make Christmas Crackers stuffed with candy and send them off to the troops.
