The Wellesley Police Department will be collecting candy through Nov. 9 to send to troops stationed overseas.
The department has partnered with the Wellesley Dental Group, who last year took in 2,500 pounds of post-Halloween candy. The candy will be sent to troops via CarePacks, a non-profit organization which provides soldiers with morale-boosting items and supplies.
The Wellesley Dental Group, owned by Ejaz and Femina Ali, will be accepting candy donations between normal business hours at their office, 5 Seaward Road. Candy donations can be dropped off at the police station 24 hours a day through Nov. 9.
