Operation Gratitude 2021

October 26, 2021

Our favorite time of year is back and we’re kicking it off with our annual Halloween Candy Give Back for Operation Gratitude!

Bring your extra Halloween candy to our office and we will take it to Operation Gratitude to donate to veterans, active military, and first responders to help bring a smile to their faces.

What can I donate to Operation Gratitude?

  • Candy (unopened and wrapped)
  • Toiletries
  • Snack items
  • Thank you letters

Where do I drop off my donation?

Advanced Dental Care located at 3033 Bristol St. Ste. 103, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.

When can I drop off my donation?

Donations can be dropped off any time during normal business hours from Monday, October 25th to Friday, November 5th.

Why should I donate my extra Halloween candy?

Not only are you doing something kind for the people that keep us safe, you’re also doing something good for yourself by limiting the amount of candy you and your family might otherwise consume.

But that’s not all. When you donate your candy, toiletries, snacks, or thank you letters for Operation Gratitude, you’ll be entered into a raffle to win:

  • Oral-B Electric Toothbrush
  • $100 Visa Gift Card
  • and more!

Why is Advanced Dental Care hosting a Halloween Candy Give Back?
