Halloween Candy Buy-Back Time

We all like a bit of candy, but too much can wreak havoc on our health. Halloween-time is all about treats and the crews at Sheridan Memorial Hospital and Bighorn Pediatric Dentistry teamed up Monday to buy back those extra sweets and all for a great cause...Operation Gratitude.

This is the 3rd year Bighorn Pediatric Dentistry has coordinated the buy-back for Operation Gratitude and Erin Kranz explains the cause.

Each child receives a dollar for each pound of donated candy up to five pounds. Kranz says kids like the extra money, but for her daughter, donating Halloween candy is mandatory.

Over at the hospital, it was dietician Megan Sexton that headed up the candy buy-back and says its all about those excess calories.

Both organizations expected to collect over 100 pounds of candy to send oversees.
