Kash for Kandy

Since 2009, Dr. Kandy’s office has hosted “Kash for Kandy,” which is part of the National Halloween Candy Buyback Campaign. This program involves offering cash for the candy collected on Halloween. Now this is not a ban of Halloween - far from it, since the trick-or-treating aspect of the holiday is exciting and fun! What the buyback does is give kids an alternative use for their excess candy that they can feel good about. Dr. Kandy’s office is the collection site in our area for the buyback. The children bring in their excess candy, and it is weighed; they received $1 per pound along with a goodie bag with all sorts of area coupons and fun stuff! The candy that is collected is sent to Operation Gratitude who forwards it to our military troops to help cheer them up during their mission! This allows children to be involved in a charitable act to show support for our family members, neighbors and friends risking their lives for our country. We have sent over 400lbs of candy from our office over the past years and hope to break our last year’s record with another successful event this year! Visit www.operationgratitude.com and learn more about the project.

National Children’s Dental Health Month

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month! Our office partakes in various events to promote dental health and awareness for children, especially during this month. Dr. Kandy visits area schools, and she and her puppet, Fritz, help to educate area students about dental health, diet and oral hygiene! Our office also promotes the Illinois State Dental Society’s annual coloring contest! Kids can pick up coloring contest sheets and rules at our office and return them to us, and we will mail them for you! For more information visit the American Dental Association website.

Doggie Jog

Dr. Kandy is an annual sponsor of our local Doggie Jog in September and the Eastminster Dog show in April. This event helps raise funds for the Prairieland Animal Welfare Center. Dr. Kandy and her 4-legged friends can also be seen participating in this event!
