Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey asks patients and their families to donate Halloween candy.
Morristown, NJ – New Jersey dentist Edward Romano, DDS has been running an ongoing donation drive for troops overseas for the past five years. The month of October, and especially around Halloween, is the time of year when Dr. Romano creates a major push for donations. Surprising as it may be, candy is one of the items this dentist tries to collect at Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey, their New Jersey practice.
Dr. Romano uses Halloween to offer patients and their families a chance to donate their Halloween candy. Though the dentist collects any items that might be useful or needed by the troops (such as socks or batteries) he has found that candy literally gives the troops a taste of home. Once a donation box is filled, it is donated to the United Service Organizations (USO).
Dr. Romano’s family has a military background, which initially inspired the ongoing donation drive at the New Jersey dentistry practice. His father was a military marine and his cousin also recently served overseas. Dr. Romano believes that regardless of people’s personal beliefs about military engagement, people can still offer troops who are putting their lives at risk for the country a few moments of ease and relaxation. Through Frontline Television News, the dentist has seen the soldiers with Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey’s donation boxes first hand.
Dr. Romano says he knows these troops appreciate what might seem like a small gesture, but a gesture that reminds the troops that people back in the United States are still thinking of them and that they are not alone. Some of these troops have even stopped by Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey upon their return to personally thank the New Jersey dentist and the participants of their Morristown dentistry practice’s donation drive for giving them a few comforts of home while they were abroad.
