BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Kids in Brunswick and Bladen counties can exchange their Halloween candy for cash.

Participating dentist offices are offering $1 for every pound of candy donated at either location until November 9.

The collected candy will be sent to U.S. Troops overseas as part of Operation Gratitude, a non-profit organization dedicated to giving back to our service men and women.

Coastal Cosmetic Family Dentistry is collecting candy 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at both locations. They're giving away free T-shirts to the first 100 kids/teens who participate.
