Dr. Joyce A. Perih Orthodontics recently conducted a Candy Buyback to benefit Operation Gratitude for its annual Christmas care package program. Operation Gratitude annually sends 150,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items. Dr. Perih’s patients, friends of patients and Girl Scout Troops 50678 and 50256 collected over 400 pounds of Halloween candy! The candy was sorted and shipped out on Veteran’s Day in order to arrive at Operation Gratitude in California by the official ship date overseas. Dr. Perih’s office has been holding the Candy Buyback Program for the last 10 years, donating to a variety of different charities each year. This year’s donation was the largest to date.
A special thank you to commander Peter Puhalla of VFW Post 6082 Shopa-Davey for his donation to the shipping cost, also to everyone who participated and made this wonderful cause possible! We are looking forward to next year!
