Robison Orthodontics has announced it will be buying back Halloween Candy from all East Valley Arizona Banner Health Employees at $2.00 a pound and then matching the total candy purchased at $2.00 a pound for their donation to the Banner Health Cardon Children’s Medical Center in Mesa, AZ.
As a special treat to the U.S. service men and women overseas, all the Halloween Candy we buy back from the AZ Banner Health Employees will be donated to, and shipped by www.packagefromhome.org, a Phoenix based non-profit organization that coordinates the distribution of our Halloween Candy to our troops overseas.
According to Robison Orthodontics’ Office Manager Kris Kellis, “this year will be our eighth annual candy-buy-back donation drive and we’re all excited about our first collaborative sponsorship supporting the Cardon Children’s Medical Center in Mesa, Arizona. We’re hoping this will drive other Banner Health Community Orthodontists to do the same.
Last year, we raised a total of $4,000 for several Mesa and Gilbert Schools, and the 2,000 pounds of candy we bought back was donated to our troops serving overseas. This year we expect to make it a Banner Year with our Arizona Banner Health Employee participation”.
How The Banner Health Employee Halloween Candy Buy Back works
After the trick or treating is finished, children can bring their candies to the Robison Orthodontics Mesa and Gilbert office locations:
The child or children must be present to receive their cash payment and Candy contribution will be limited to four pounds per employee, and eight pounds limit per family, details can be viewed on our Mesa Orthodontist website” says Kris.
When Banner Health Employees Can Bring In Their Halloween Candy.
The Banner Health Employee Halloween Candy buy back event takes place on Thursday, November 1, 2012 from 8:00 am through to 5:00 pm.
“This is one of the ways we have decided on giving back to our host community of Mesa, Arizona,” says Kris, who considers this event a charitable one that’s turning candies into a financial contribution to support the Cardon Children’s Medical Center, and also bring a little sweet treat to our US soldiers serving overseas.
