TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - All the candy your child receives on Halloween might not be so good for their teeth.

That’s why Kool Smiles Dental Office in Terre Haute is taking candy donations for a good cause.

Kids are encouraged to bring in their unopened candy and Kool Smiles will donate it to U.S. Troops.

For every 25 pieces of candy donated, the child will receive one toy in return.

The office will send care packages to the troops for a “sweet” reminder of home.

Last year, children donated more than four tons of candy through this program.

The office will be accepting donations until Saturday November 4th.
