Join Drs. Ali & Ali this year by supporting Wellesley Dental Group’s 6th annual Candy Drive to benefit U.S. Troops.
“Our goal is to encourage kids to give up their extra Halloween candy and send a little sweetness overseas. For our troops, who are so far away, M&Ms and the handwritten cards children send are a little treat that remind them of home,” said Dr. Femina Ali of Wellesley Dental Group.
All Wellesley Public schools are eligible to participate. The school that donates the most candy per child will win $500 to use at their PTO’s discretion.*
Wellesley Dental Group will kick-off the drive with a Halloween Costume party on October 30th from 4-6 p.m. at their office (located at 5 Seaward Road in Wellesley, Mass.), with food, games, prizes and toothbrushes. Everyone is welcome. They will accept candy donations between Nov. 1 and Nov. 8 and will hold a press event on the 8th at 10 a.m., which is open to the community, before they send the candy off in a U-Haul. CarePacks, a non-profit organization that sends care packages to troops overseas, will package up the candy and cards. Principals, faculty, parents and students (with permission from their teachers of course) are welcome to attend.
To schedule a candy drop-off between November 1 and November 8 at Wellesley Dental Group, located at 5 Seaward Road in Wellesley, Mass., please call 781.237.9071 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
*To ensure a fair competition the winner will be determined by the total weight of the candy donated divided by the total number of students attending each school. We are requesting the schools provide us with this information. Read More here!
