More than 65 pounds of candy will be sent to U.S. troops serving overseas as a result of the recent candy buy-back at Advanced Dental Arts on Easton Avenue.

Held on Nov. 3 and 4, this is the fourth year Dr. Joseph Haddad and his staff have held the event.

Haddad said the initial 65 pounds will be sent out this weekend, with more going out next week.

“We have people dropping more off today and some Monday, so that will go out in the next week,” he said.

Haddad paid $2 per pound for the excess Halloween candy brought in to his office.

“It’s just great for the troops to support them and all they do for us,” he said. “And, it takes away the candy from the kids so they get less cavities.”
