A local dentist is back again this year buying excess candy from Halloween and sending it overseas.

Barras Family Dentistry is sponsoring the 4th annual Operation Gratitude to send treats to our troops overseas. Those wanting to give their candy can bring it from November 1-7 to their office at 1700 Kaliste Saloom Road, Bldg. 4, in Lafayette. Collection times are 8:00 am to 4:20 pm and Friday from 8:00 am to 1:30 pm.

They will buy excess Halloween candy for $1.00 a pound, up to $5.00 per child/adult.

Donations are going straight to military serving our country overseas. Those without candy to give can still make a donation during collection times.
