Henderson Mill Dental Care hosted its third Annual Halloween Candy Buy Back on November 2nd and 3rd. This has become a tradition of the HMDC family on the Monday following Halloween. This year we collected 46 pounds of candy and each child received $2 per pound in exchange for their contribution. We had several from local area preschools and schools that came during the two day period. The smiles on their faces when they received their cash were priceless. We weren't surprised to hear from some that their parents had raided their candy first.
While many dental offices donate candy to the military, we wanted to help an organization close to home. Kashi Atlanta is a yoga studio in Decatur with a mission to help the community. The founders of Kashi Atlanta started Kashi’s Street Meals program in 1999 to help support Atlanta’s homeless. To learn more about Kashi Atlanta’s Street Meals Program please see the attached letter and feel free to visit Kashi Atlanta Ma's Street Meals page. Kashi is thankful for our continued support and reached out to us this year to ensure our donation. With what Kashi receives from HMDC they are able to provide each person they feed with one piece of candy. For someone who doesn’t know where their next meal is going to come from, a small piece of candy is something special.
Thank you for allowing Henderson Mill Dental Care the opportunity to help support others and we look forward to donating again next year. Please keep it in mind for November 2016.
