How It Works

Operation Troop Treats is a national Halloween candy exchange benefiting U.S. service members and their families, hosted by local dental offices in partnership with Operation Gratitude.

Here's how it works:

  1. From Oct. 27 through Nov. 3, children and families can visit any participating dental office during business hours to exchange their Halloween candy for a toy*.
  2. Dental offices collect all the donated Halloween candy and sends it to Operation Gratitude.
  3. Operation Gratitude ships the candy to U.S. troops stationed overseas in care packages filled with letters of appreciation, food, entertainment, toiletries, handmade items, and other sweet reminders of home.
