Operation Candy BuyBack

At Silverman & Associates, we’re proud of the good work we do to keep our Bayside and Bellmore family dentist patients’ teeth healthy and clean. In addition to this team effort, we also come together for charitable organizations. This fall, we once again participated in Operation Candy BuyBack, which benefits Operation Gratitude who sends care packages to the United States military.

We’re proud to say for 2014, we set a Silverman & Associates record, “buying” back 1,000 pounds of candy! We are so grateful to our patients and all who participated in this effort.

Here’s how Operation Candy BuyBack works: We welcomed our patients and members of the community to bring in their Halloween candy to our office. We “bought” back candy on November 1 through 8 by offering $1 for each pound of candy, for up to 10 pounds donated. 

At the end of our buy back program, we sent the collected candy to Operation Gratitude. This organization has sent more than one million care packages to our military since starting in 2003. We’re proud to participate with our patients and community in spreading a little cheer to our servicemen and women.

Please stay tuned to our Facebook page (see the link at the bottom of this page) for our monthly community programs. We often offer opportunities, such as our Thanksgiving Food Drive and Toys for Tots, to benefit the community and receive discounts on services such as whitening and sealants. We’re grateful to our supportive patients and staff who make these efforts a success.
