WDG Team and 900 lbs of candy 

WELLESLEY, MA — A huge pile of candy does not scare the dentist away! In fact, Drs. Ali and Ali of Wellesley Dental Group say “bring it on” when it comes to the tons of candy local children collect at Halloween. Children and their parents are invited to drop off extra candy to benefit overseas troops during the second-annual Halloween Candy drive. 

In 2008, more than 900 pounds of candy went to overseas troops.

Candy can be delivered to Wellesley Dental Group, 5 Seaward Road in Wellesley between 9 am and 4 pm, Monday through Thursday, and 9 am to 1 pm on Fridays, starting November 2 through November 13.

Each child will receive $1 for paper lunch bags full of candy in this candy “buy-back.” Last year, over 900 pounds of candy were donated to S.K.I.P. (Special Kindness in Packages, Inc.) This year, the goal is for over 2,000 pounds of candy to be sent to troops in fun care packages.  (We’ve actually upped the goal from 1,000 pounds).

For more information about the drive and Drs. Ali’s “Keeping Cavities off the Streets” campaign, please call 781-237-9071.

All of our events are featured on our Facebook and twitter accounts.  To stay in the loop, we welcome you to friend us on Facebook (we have a group and a fan page) or follow @WellesleyDental on twitter.
