Dentist paying cash for candy to donate to troops
Holly Tree Pediatric Dentistry will pay cash for Halloween candy.  In the days following Halloween, children and parents can bring their excess candy to Holly Tree Pediatric Dentistry in Simpsonville and receive $1 per pound up to $5. 

Dr. Ann Bynum and her team will then package the candy and send it to our troops.  This is all a part of a national movement called Operation Gratitude.  Last year, Holly Tree Pediatric Dentistry donated 1,600 pounds of candy.  This year the goal is to collect more than one ton of candy for our soldiers.

Candy will be accepted during regular business hours Nov. 1- 8 at Holly Tree’s office located at 1334 South Highway 14 in Simpsonville.

In addition, Dr. Bynum is inviting children to write notes or draw pictures to send to the troops along with their candy.  Families who have loved ones stationed overseas may also submit those soldiers’ names and addresses so that they may receive a care package.

Holly Tree Pediatric Dentistry will match all contributions to Operation Gratitude with a donation to Let There Be Mom and the Greenville Children’s Hospital.

For additional information on Operation Gratitude call Holly Tree Pediatric Dentistry at (864) 297-5585 or visit here.
