Salina dentists are offering to buy back kids' Halloween candy and send it to soldiers.

The Salina Journal reports that Discovery Dental Center has offered to buy back Halloween candy from children for $2 a pound. They'll then send the sugary loot to soldiers overseas.

Drs. Earl O'Hara, Gary O'Hara and Brent Mayginnes say they'll buy unopened candy from trick-or-treaters, exchanging money, toothbrushes and prizes.

They'll ship the candy haul to California-based Operation Gratitude, which assembles and ships care packages for soldiers. The dentists say they'll also accept monetary donations for shipping and handling for the care packages.

The candy and donations will be accepted at Discovery Dental Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Nov. 2 and 3.
