D Ray Gifford with Cool smiles says that the program, "Troop Treats" is win for everybody.
Not only will it cut down on the cavities for kids, but it'll keep soldiers smiling, too.
"It provides a benefit to the children in being able to reduce the amount of decay that can form on their teeth related to the sugar they put on it," said Gifford. "It provides a benefit to our troops to be able to provide care packages to them with some candy in it and some reminders that we appreciate what they're doing for us as a country out in the service and work that they're providing."
Last year, the program pulled in over 2,000 pounds of candy.
Cool Smiles is collecting candy November 1st through November 6th.
