Dr. Aly Kanani wants donations of Halloween candy from kids on Nov. 2.

Sweet help for Surrey Food Bank

Dentist collecting Halloween candy donatons will match weight in grocery donations to food bank.

Surrey dentist Dr. Aly Kanani at Guildford Orthodontic Centre is again offering to help kids prevent cavities while benefitting the Surrey Food Bank.

As he has done for the last eight, years Kanani is offering $1 for every pound of Halloween candy kids bring into his dental office on Monday, Nov. 2 between 3-6:30 p.m.

And he will match the pounds of candy donated with pounds of food to the food bank.

Kanani is also encouraging everyone to bring in a pair of adult socks, with each pair receiving an entry into a draw for an electric toothbrush.

The socks will then be donated to the homeless.

The school with students making the most donations will receive a $200 donation.

Guildford Orthodontic Centre is located at #200-10203 152A St.
