The Kool Smiles dental offices are holding its annual "Operation Troop Treats," a Halloween candy exchange to benefit U.S. troops who are serving overseas. 

Kids and families can stop by the offices and swap the candy they received on Halloween for toys. 

The donated candy is sent to the troops in care packages along with other goodies and dental care kits through the offices partnership with Operation Gratitude.

Each child receives one toy for every 25 pieces of unopened candy donated. 

This free event is now in its fifth year. 

The exchange will be held until November 5 during regular service hours at the Kool Smiles dental offices located at 2990 South 6th Avenue and 5504 East 22nd Street.
