Halloween is just around the corner and trick-or-treating is on the minds of Twin Cities families. Children may be excited about treats, but parents are worried about too many sweets affecting their kid’s health.
Participating Fairview clinics will give a book to each child who donates their unopened Halloween candy. The candy will be sent to military personnel serving overseas.
Last year the program resulted in a sweet haul. More than 1,395 pounds of candy was distributed to troops.
Children will receive a new book in exchange for their donation.
Kids can exchange their candy any time the clinic is open from Monday, Nov. 3, through Friday, Nov. 7. Visit fairview.org/clinic to find the hours for your location.
21 Fairview Clinics are participating in the exchange:
Bloomington Lake, Minneapolis
Bloomington Lake, Xerxes
