150 lbs. of Candy Donated as Part of Hurley & Volk Orthodontics' Candy Give Back Initiative

Online PR News – 26-November-2018 – Schaumburg, IL – Hurley & Volk Orthodontics presented 150 lbs. of donated, unopened Halloween candy to local first responders, local retirement/senior living communities, and a Thanksgiving community dinner expected to serve about 1,500 people!

The challenge was a part of Hurley & Volk Orthodontics' Give Back campaign. Hurley & Volk Orthodontics asked families to drop off their Halloween candy to any one of the practice's three locations in Schaumburg, South Elgin, and Hampshire.

Drs. Ryan Hurley and Tonya Volk, the husband and wife orthodontic team at Hurley & Volk Orthodontics, volunteered at the dinner hosted by "In the Neighborhood Deli" at United Methodist Church which welcomed anyone in the community to a Thanksgiving feast.

Drs. Hurley and Volk often see children with damaged braces following Halloween as a result of eating chewy and sticky treats. This year, as they have done the past several years, they wanted to give kids an opportunity to turn in their sweet treats for a good cause and avoid consuming excess sugar and breaking brackets.

"Eating hard, sticky and chewy foods can contribute to tooth decay and can cause damage to braces," says Dr. Tonya Volk. "We wanted to encourage kids to shy away from consuming too many sweets and offer an alternative to do something good for our community instead. Our Candy Give Back Challenge allowed us to accomplish both goals, and we are so proud of our community for joining us in recognizing local heroes and giving back to their community!"
