A few local health care providers want to take extra Halloween candy off your hands and donate it to charitable causes, according to their websites:
Dr. Thomas Jusino, DDS, will pay patients $2 a pound for candy on Nov. 1, 2 p.m.-5 p.m. Collected candy will be donated to a number of charities, including the Goodfellows, Farmington Hills Inn for Assisted Living, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the Farmington Hills Community School. Jusino will also match a donation to the Cipriano Children's Trust fund in the amount paid out to patients. Call 248-476-3000 to learn more.
Orchard Maple Family Dental, 6280 Orchard Lake Rd., will pay $1 per pound (up to five) through Nov. 3 for unopened Halloween candy that will be donated to Operation Gratitude, which sends care packages to U.S. troops. Dr. Warren Woodruff will accept candy between 2-8 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday.
