Hopewell Dental Care began its “Treats for Troops” campaign on Oct. 26.

As a way to promote good dental care and philanthropy, the practice will purchase Halloween candy for $1 per pound from area residents and patients. Candy will then be sent to troops serving overseas.

Donations may be made at the practice’s location at 572 Industrial Parkway in Heath or at AMVETS of Ohio, 1395 E. Dublin Granville Road in Columbus. The drive runs through Nov. 15.

Last year, patients and area residents brought in 574 pounds of candy for Treats for Troops. This year, the practice hopes to collect 689 pounds of candy.
