Cash for Candy is Coming!

Johnson Family Dental & Alegre Dental and Braces

Johnson Family Dental and Alegre Dental and Braces are announcing their 7th annual Cash for Candy kid’s event November 3-7th. Trick-or-treaters who are looking for some quick cash can sell up to five pounds of Halloween candy back to any Johnson Family Dental location or Alegre Dental and Braces in Santa Barbara for $2 per pound.

From Monday, November 3rd through Friday, November 7, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, the buyback will give youth a chance to sell their candy. That candy will then be donated to a local charity called the Unity Shoppe. Children ages 1 to 12 are encouraged to come weigh their candy and get paid for donating it at two dollars a pound. Five-pound maximum per child. In 2013 we were able to collect over 500 pounds of candy! This year we are looking to exceed that amount.
