Lee Family Dentistry to host annual candy buy-back event on Nov. 3

Lee Family Dentistry will host its fourth annual Candy Buy Back on Nov. 3, from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

The event will take place at Lee Family Dentistry’s Oxford location, where children will receive $1 per pound of candy they donate. Donors will be given a toothbrush, toothpaste and floss, among other prizes in exchange for unopened Halloween candy. Children may donate up to five pounds of candy each. The candy will be shipped in care packages to troops overseas through Operation Gratitude.

“Local parents love the event because it gets all unwanted Halloween candy out of the house and into the hands of our soldiers abroad, who greatly enjoy a reminder of home,” Dr. Preston H. Lee said.

Lee Dentistry is at 1201 Office Park Drive, at the corner of South Lamar Boulevard and Office Park Drive.
