Reminder: Candy Drive (Candy Drive 2018 flyer)

The following message is from the Wellesley Dental Group regarding their Annual Community Candy Drive:


All schools, institutions and civic organizations are invited to join Wellesley Dental Group's 11th Annual Community Candy Drive to benefit the U.S. Troops serving overseas. From November 1st to November 8th, we will be collecting candy, handwritten notes and cards for our soldiers. These items can be donated in the Deerfield lobby.


Our goal is to teach the kids lessons in giving by encouraging them to share their extra Halloween candy with our troops overseas. These sweet treats and the handwritten cards are a reminder of home for these soldiers, and a reflection of our gratitude. The packages will be sent via CarePacks, a non-profit organization, along with oral hygiene supplies.


To schedule a candy drop-off, please call (781-237-9071) or email us at candydrive@wellesleydentalgroup.com.


Let's keep this fun tradition going! Thank you
