Kids can receive a $1 per pound for up to five pounds of candy and also get a ticket to win prizes. Children who visit the office will also be able to write cards and letters to those in the Armed Forces. Lesan is a Navy veteran.

There are a number of similar candy buy-back programs around the country.
