SMILE SAN CLEMENTE PROUDLY SUPPORTS OPERATION GRATITUDE
Operation Gratitude annually sends 200,000+ care packages filled with food, entertainment, hygiene, and handmade items, plus personal letters of appreciation to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes, their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home.
Smile San Clemente supports Operation Gratitude with our annual Halloween Candy Buyback Program. The first week of each November, Smile San Clemente purchases Halloween candy from our patients and members of the community. Along with the collected candy, Smile San Clemente donates toothbrushes and other dental supplies to Operation Gratitude.
Be a part of helping us support our troops! Join us next year and bring us your candy!
