Children donate Halloween candy



VERNON — Taking candy from children is usually frowned upon, but teaching kids the value of giving back by donating their excess Halloween candy in support of U.S. Troops and First Responders is a win-win for kids, parents, and orthodontists alike.
This Halloween, local trick-or-treaters joined kids across the nation when they brought their Halloween candy to Dr. Lohner’s office. The goodies will be shipped to Operation Gratitude for inclusion in Care Packages to U.S. Service Members deployed overseas and to First Responders serving here at home.
Dr. Lohner is proud to participate in the Operation Gratitude Halloween GIVE-Back Program to reduce excess sugar consumption, prevent dental decay, and teach children the importance of saying “Thank You” to all who serve.
