Eau Claire (WQOW) — Did your kids rake in buckets of Halloween candy? Well, if you’re looking to bring them down from a sugar high, a local dental office has an option for you.

Oakwood Hills Family Dental has started its annual Halloween candy buy back program. For every pound of candy you bring in, they’ll give you a dollar, up to five pounds. You child will get a toothbrush gift bag, and be entered into a prize raffle to win gift cards or a Play-Doh set.

Officials at Oakwood Hills told News 18 this is about more than just cutting down on candy.

“It’s one way of giving back to the community of those that are less fortunate that didn’t get to go trick-or-treating,” said Renee Marino.

The candy won’t just be thrown out. Instead, Oakwood Hills is donating it to Chippewa Valley Street Ministry.

You can bring in candy during regular business hours November 1, 2, 5 and 6.
