AMHERST, N.Y. -- Those with leftover Halloween candy to spare were able to ensure it was donated to U.S. troops Tuesday or turned into some money at the 10th annual Halloween Candy Buy-Back.
The event is run each year by Winning Smiles Pediatric Dentistry. Those with candy they would like to donate or exchange can drop it off at 3476 Sheridan Drive in Amherst or at 3364 Southwestern Blvd. in Orchard Park from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
$1 is given to those who donate one pound or more -- and a free toothbrush.
The military donations are organized through Packs4Patriots, a non-profit that supports troops and their families by giving them care packages.
