Operation Gratitude will be sending an estimated 60,000 care packages to soldiers, and local dentists have partnered to help.
Last year, the organization received and shipped 125 tons, according to its website.
This year, Snellville residents can drop of their candy to Oak Road Denistry, located at 2176 Oak Road in Snellville. or Kool Smiles, located at 4030 Lawrenceville Highway in Lilburn.
Participating denists may give $1/pound for the candy, or other items such as: dental goody bags or special prizes.
In addition to candy, the organization is also asking for toothbrush and toothpaste to include in care packages.
*For more information, check with your nearest participating dentist, which can be found on the Operation Gratitude website. Because the dentists must ship products no later than Dec. 5, they may have varying deadlines.
