SARTELL -- Halloween may be over but the treats keep on coming, but this time from the kids who received them.

Trick-or-treaters stopped by Sartell Pediatrics this (Monday) evening to drop of their excess candy as part of the Candy Buy Back program.

"It's just a nice way to utilize that excess candy we've all had in the past," says Rapatz-Harr.

Jennifer Rapatz-Harr is the Physician Assistant at Sartell Pediatrics. She says the program is a great teaching lesson for the kids.

"It's a way to try and teach the kids how to share and to donate for a cause," says Rapatz-Harr.

This is the third year of the Candy Buy Back program. For every pound of candy brought in the kids get a dollar in their pocket.

"We weigh the candy and anywhere from a dollar to five dollars and it's usually based on the pound," says Rapatz-Harr.

All the candy collected will go to troops serving our country.

Rapatz-Harr says the kids seem to enjoy giving more than receiving when it comes to candy.
