Comox Valley Dental Health Centre invites all the kids in our community to participate in our new and exciting Halloween Challenge.

“We in the dental industry see first hand the effect that too much candy can have on children’s teeth. This year Comox Valley Dental Health Centre is challenging the kids of our community to select a few of their favourite treats and donate the rest for cash,” the Centre says in a  press release.

For every pound of candy donated, the child will earn $1 per pound and the dentists’ office with match that by donating $1 per pound to the food bank.

Each child donating candy will receive a goody bag with a new toothbrush and gifts from local sponsors. There’s a limit of one per child while supplies last.

On Nov. 5 (the first Saturday after Halloween), bring children with unopened candy donations to the Comox Valley Dental Health Centre at 1710 B Comox Ave. in Comox between 10 a.m. and  1 p.m.

They will weigh the candy and pay $1 per pound to a maximum of five pounds per child. Children will receive a toothbrush and small goody bag.

Kids can enter their names into a raffle for a chance to win prizes from local sponsors Applebees, Subway, Walmart, A&W, Booster Juice, CVRD Sports and Aquatics Centre, Monk Office Supplies and Little Caesars Pizza.
