Candy Buy Back at Halloween

Kids love trick or treating, but most parents aren’t big fans of the buckets of candy that come home with them. Instead of letting your kids gorge themselves on holiday candy or staring at bowls of candy for the next several months, bring your children’s Halloween candy to our office. We participate in the Halloween Candy Buy Back program every year. Not only does it reduce our young patients’ consumption of candy and improve their oral health, we also use the candy for a good cause. It is sent to US military men and women as part of care packages. It’s a win for everyone.

Second Harvest Food Bank

The Second Harvest Food Bank is the largest provider of food access for families at risk of hunger across southern Louisiana. In Louisiana, one of five households are at risk of hunger and the constantly rising cost of living, high unemployment rates, and low-wage jobs mean that this serious concern will only continue to spread without the support of our community members. That’s why Nelson Dental Care is proud to support of Second Harvest Food Bank. We collect food items, offer volunteer hours, and do everything we can to ensure families in Metairie and all of Southern Louisiana receive the food they need to lead healthy lives.

Our team participates in a toy drive to provide kids at Children’s Hospital in New Orleans a little bit of cheer at a very difficult time. These gifts can help give children a reason to smile, and that’s always our goal at Nelson Dental Care of Metairie.
