CHATHAM, NJ - Chatham dentist Corina Atanase, DMD, reports that more than "300 pounds" of leftover Halloween candy has been collected in the fourth annual "Halloween Candy Buyback" program that benefits members of the U.S. military.

"This is our fourth annual," Dr. Antanase said. "It's great to get it out of parents' and kids' houses for their better health and to bring a smile to our troops that sacrifice so much for all of us.

"Some soldiers get the candy as part of their care packages through Operation Gratitude and instead of eating themselves, they share them with the kids in the countries where they might be stationed."
