Do you have extra Halloween candy in the house that you're trying to get rid of?

The buy-back event takes place Tuesday, Nov. 1 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Dr. J. Philipp Dentistry is located at 3230 S. Gilbert Road, suite 4, in Chandler.


On Thursday, Nov. 3, Aesthetic Family Dental Care in Mesa will hold a candy buy-back event.

All of the candy will be sent to our military overseas. Their address is 6626 E. Baseline Road, suite 101, Mesa AZ 85206.
