Pleasant Grove, Utah – Cash and prizes for kids, candy for our troops

Flat Rate Doctors in cooperation with Operation Give is redefining the phrase “put your money where your mouth is.” This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Smith’s in Pleasant Grove and receive cash and prizes for their candy that will be sent overseas to our troops.

“We are extremely excited for this event. Parents look forward to this almost as much as the trick-or-treating,” says Flat Rate Doctors Kirt Forakis. “Not only is it for a great cause, but it’s fun to dress up one last time and a healthy way for kids to get cash and free prizes and make this Halloween a little easier on their teeth as well.”

Prizes include: $1 per lb up to 3lbs, healthy goodie bag from Smith’s, cookie and ice cream from Chick-Fil-A, day pass from Seven Peaks, smoothie from Roxbury, cheesy bread from Little Caesars, and photo with mascots and troop members from CheapShots Photography. Parents will also receive a free chiropractic adjustment and anyone who donates $5 or more to Operation Give will be given a miniature American flag. The event will be held on November 1st from 5p – 7p located at 210 E. 700 S. Pleasant Grove, Utah 84062.

Flat Rate Doctors, dental and chiropractic, is leading this anti-decay movement to get those large amounts of cavity-provoking candy out of the hands of kids and used for a great cause. Global sugar consumption for kids increases by about 2% annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year, which means parents need to be sure their kids teeth are being cared for more than ever. Candy can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. In some cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken teeth and damaged braces.

A new locally owned and operated dental and chiropractic office, Flat Rate Doctors was founded in 2016. Flat Rate Doctors makes pricing simple and provides high-quality care. Their phone number is (801) 610-7283. To learn more about Flat Rate Doctors visit or see them at 352 E. State Road in Pleasant Grove for a free first adjustment and free dental x-rays and exams for life.

All candy will be donated to Operation Christmas Stocking an initiative by Operation Give. This is their 12th year of delivering Christmas Stockings to our deployed Troops. You can donate to this project at
