Minneapolis Orthodontics Practice Ships Halloween Candy To U.S. Troops
November 23, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsNovember 23, 2008- ST. PAUL AND MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA – On Tuesday, Minneapolis Orthodontist Dr. Jennifer Eisenhuth shipped 850 pounds of candy to U.S. troops serving in Iraq.
This is the fourth year Eisenhuth has sponsored a candy buy-back program in which patients were asked to turn in candy that might harm their braces and exchange it for tokens they could redeem for other prizes.
Eisenhuth shipped toothpaste, toothbrushes and dental floss along with the candy to four units serving in Iraq.
In addition to her patients, the community got involved after learning about Eisenhuth's buy-back program through media coverage she received in local newspapers and on Fox 9 News.
Many donors turned down the tokens they were offered, saying they simply wanted to donate to a good cause, Eisenhuth said.
"Our patients broke the record this year," she said. Last year, the practice collected more than 600 pounds of candy.
Eisenhuth was surprised to learn that many of the soldiers who received the candy and oral hygiene items last year gave them away to Iraqi children.
"It was so rewarding to learn that we gave our military personnel these items to cheer them up and they shared them with Iraqi children to help establish good will," she said.
