PEORIA, Ill. -- You can give all of that extra Halloween candy away and bring a smile to some of our nation's heroes.

Maple Shade Dental is buying back holiday sweet treats on Monday.

Kids can bring excess candy to any of the Maple Shade locations and receive one dollar per pound of candy.

All of the goodies will be given to Operation Santa and sent to the troops overseas.

You can drop off your candy at any one of the three locations on Monday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Last year, more than 450 pounds were collected and donated to the troops.
