Thursday, October 18, 2018 - Do something sweet this Halloween and donate candy to troops!

PowerUp is teaming up with HealthPartners Dental Clinics to offer a candy trade-in this Halloween.

Kids can trade in their excess Halloween candy for fun PowerUp prizes. They’ll also have the chance to write thank you cards to soldiers that will be included in care packages sent with the donated candy to local and overseas military troops.

Last year, communities in western Wisconsin and the Twin Cities traded in more than 2,000 pounds of leftover candy.

During business hours on Thursday, Nov. 1 and Friday, Nov. 2, children and families can stop by the following locations to turn in their treats:

  • Amery Hospital & Clinic (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.)
  • Amery Area Public Library (9 a.m. to 7 p.m.)
  • Hudson Hospital & Clinic (8 a.m. to 7 p.m.)
  • Stillwater Medical Group Stillwater Clinic (8 a.m. to 7 p.m.)
  • Stillwater Medical Group Mahtomedi Clinic (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
  • Stillwater Medical Group Somerset Clinic (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.)
  • Westfields Hospital & Clinic (8 a.m. to 7 p.m.)
