East Bay Candy Buyback - Turn candy into CASH! (2019) - 510 Families

East Bay Candy Buyback — Turn candy into CASH! (2019)

This year’s Halloween candy buyback round-up was sponsored by Alameda Pediatric Dentistry.

Do you cringe at the amount of candy your child gets trick-or-treating? I love the fun of the Halloween experience, but don’t want the piles of sugar in my house for the next few months. Halloween candy buybacks are great for that! Participating dentists offer money in exchange for Halloween loot. These programs can line your kid’s pocket or kickstart a PTA-fundraising drive.

What: Swap candy for cash. Bring your Halloween candy to one of four locations of Alameda Pediatric Dentistry on Friday, November 1 from 7:30 am to 5 pm. Kids will be paid $1 per pound of unopened candy, and the candy will go to a local charitable cause (last year, hundreds of pounds of candy were sent to military troops abroad).

Where: Alameda Pediatric Dentistry offices in Alameda, Brentwood, Oakland, and Pleasanton.
