SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

One local dentist has partnered with Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit volunteer organization that sends packages to deployed troops, to buy back Halloween candy. Collected candy will be sorted and sent along in care packages to troops across the globe.
On Friday, November 1 and Saturday, November 2, Dr. Judy Tiffany and her staff will buy candy from neighborhood kids at $1 per pound. Candy will be weighed and paid for from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days at Monarch View Dental, Inc., located at 28 Monarch Bay Plaza, Suite C.
Tiffany has served the community for more than 30 years and hopes the buyback will brighten the troops’ and donators’ days.
