Halloween is getting a little sweeter, thanks to Operation Troop Treats. 

If kids and families bring their candy to Kool Smiles clinics, that candy will be sent to troops, veterans and first responders as a token of appreciation.  

Every child that comes in can receive one toy for every 25 pieces of unopened candy in its original packaging. There is a limit of three toys per child, and they are first-come, first-served.

Kool Smiles clinics in Roanoke, Christiansburg and Danville will accept candy during office hours now through Saturday. 

You do not need to be a Kool Smiles patient to participate.
