A local dentist wants to keep your kids smiles looking good, and do something nice for our troops overseas. For the fourth year, Kool Smiles is sending our Armed Forces serving over overseas Halloween candy collected from El Paso kids with its Operation Troop Treats campaign. In exchange, the kids get toys!

From Friday, Oct. 30 through Wednesday, Nov. 4, Operation Troop Treats will give toys for candy to children and families who visit one of the local Kool Smiles dental offices. Candy care packages will then be sent to U.S. troops serving overseas via Operation Gratitude. Every child who brings 25 pieces of unopened candy in its original intended packaging will receive one toy. Anyone can participate, and you don't have to be a Kool Smiles patient, but there is a limit of three toys per child.

Thank you to Kool Smiles for thinking about our troops and giving them something sweet from home!
