Halloween Candy Buyback
The Halloween Candy Buy Back (HCBB) program was started with the goal of getting some of the candy “off the streets.” Atrium Family Dental participated for the first time in 2017 supporting this endeavor by simply paying $1 for every pound of candy a child brought in followed by sending the goodies to the troops overseas. The local responses were fabulous – the national response is great too! Hundreds of local news stories led to the event getting featured by Diane Sawyer on ABC News. and most recently on CNN .
In addition to all of the good we are doing, we are also having lots of fun! We have partnered with a Veteran’s Organization by shipping all the candy donated along with toothbrushes so troops abroad can receive goodies in their care packages. Yes! Dental offices nationwide pay the kids for the candy and in return the dentists mail off the collection to our partner organization and they sort all the goodies, pack the boxes and ship those boxes to our troops abroad serving the country. More than 130 tons of candy has been collected, over the years, by collaborating with dental offices nationwide and working with our Veteran’s Organization.

L.A.M.P – Lincolnway Area Mobile Pack
In February 2016 & 2017, Atrium Famliy Dental sponsored and participated in the L.A.M.P event. This event is for the Feed My Starving Children organization. The event’s sole purpose is to raise money to pack scientifically designed nutritious meals to be sent to children in third world countries. The event aims to end child hunger and raise awareness about starvation occurring around the world. According to UNICEF, 6,200 children die a day from starvation or hunger related diseases. With L.A.M.P, we were able to provide a years worth of meals to 468 children! That is 468 children who won’t die of hunger or hunger related diseases this year. We packed a total of 37,584 meals! The L.A.M.P. event has provided over a million meals to children in need! To participate in future events, check out the dedicated Facebook page to stay updated. We hope to see you there next year!
