Westend Dental is ready to give back to our troops!
Due to last year’s success, Westend Dental is proud to again participate in Operation Gratitude for 2015. If you haven’t heard about this program or your are a recent patient of Westend, what this means is that Westend Dental will be accepting donations of leftover Halloween candy. These donations will be packaged and sent out to our troops! To make that deal a little sweeter for you, Westend Dental will give you $1 for each pound of unopened candy that you donate (up to a total of $10)!!! If you’d like to include a letter or a card with your donation, please feel free to do so and we’ll add it to our packages!
We’ll be accepting these donations Nov 2-4th from 7am- 7pm at our office. So if you were looking for an easy way to get rid of the excess candy, please help us to give back to our heroes this Halloween. Every single donation helps!
