Have a bunch of leftover Halloween candy that you don’t want to throw away (or eat yourself)? Donate all of those Kit-Kats and Snickers to a good cause.
Here’s where you can donate:
- Castle Hill Fitness – Austin’s eco-friendly gym will be collecting candy to donate to Delta Delta Delta’s Cookies & Castles gingerbread-decorating fundraiser. Candy collection boxes will be posted at the front desks at Castle Hill Fitness’ downtown and 360 locations.
- Local dentist offices – Each year, dentists from across the country participate in the Halloween Candy Buyback Program. All you have to do to participate is drop off your candy at a participating dentist’s office. The dentist will pay you or give you a special treat in exchange for the candy and then donate it to troops serving overseas. You can find a list of participating dentists in your area here. (They just ask that you call ahead to double check collection dates and times.)
