Dentists hold sixth annual “Operation Troop Treats”

News

If you want to send U.S. troops a sweet reminder of home this Halloween, you can donate to the sixth annual “Operation Troop Treats.”

Dentists from Kool Smiles are collecting Halloween candy from Borderland kids and families to send to troops overseas, in exchange for toys.

Kool Smiles General Dentist Andrew Dyer said it’s a win-win for kids and troops.

“Obviously this was put together so we can help reduce the amount of sugar that we have in the kids’ system, and also to help with troops and remind them that we do care, and we really love what you’re doing for us,” said Dyer.

If you’d like to participate, you can drop-off your candy until Saturday, Nov. 4 at the following Kool Smiles locations in El Paso:

Fairbanks – 5130 Fairbanks Road, El Paso

Lee Trevino – 1840 N. Lee Trevino Dr., Ste. 405-407

Mesa – 6910 Mesa St.

Montana – 6065 Montana Ave.

Zaragoza – 615 N. Zaragoza Rd.
