Sweet Treats for Our Troops: Candy Drive 2018

Posted by on Oct 16, 2018 in Blogs | 0 comments

It is the season of pumpkin spice and halloween candy here at the Wellesley Dental Group! As the air turns crisp and the trees turn red and gold, we gear up for one of our favorite annual events – Wellesley Dental Group’s 11th Community Candy Drive! This initiative was coined eleven years ago in an attempt to promote the spirit of sharing in our young ones while at the same time incentivizing them to eat less candy at Halloween time, and instead sharing this seasonal joy with US troops serving abroad. Over more than a decade we have been able to grow this event from just Wellesley to more than 14 towns and 40 schools across Massachusetts, gathering 10,000 pounds of candy for our soldiers last year alone! Every year we get fantastic participation from schools across the region, and for the last few candy drives, WDG has also been awarding a cash prize to the PTO of the school that contributes the highest amount of candy. 

The fun will continue this year! Candy Drive 2018 will run from November 1st to 8th, with candy been collected at the Wellesley Dental Group (5 Seaward Road, Wellesley).  Check out our flyer here. We will be hosting a community and press event on the 9th of November, from 10 am to 11 am, also at our office in Wellesley. We have a lineup of performances by young students, with State Representative Alice Peisch as our special guest. Like every year, we will also have representatives from the National Guard present, along with the Wellesley Fire and Police departments!

If you have questions or queries about how you can join hands with us for this great cause, or to RSVP for the community event, send us an email at candydrive@wellesleydentalgroup.com, or call us at 781-237-9071.
