Dr. Michelle Callahan and her father, Dr. Paul Callahan, will be collecting excess Halloween candy to be sent to veterans around the country.

Callahan Family Dentistry, a long time Garden City dental practice, is excited to announce that it is participating in Soldiers’ Angels Treats for Troops program this Halloween!  The program collects extra Halloween candy and ships it to deployed service members around the world for a sweet treat from home. “Angel” volunteers from the organization will also distribute candy to veteran patients in VA Hospitals across the country. 

Candy collection will take place from Friday, October 28th through Saturday, November 5th.  Your extra candy can be dropped off at the Callahan Family Dentistry office, located at 61 Hilton Ave, Suite 1, Garden City, NY 11530, during the times listed below.  The practice will make sure the candy gets to Soldiers’ Angels to help support their vision: May No Soldier Go Unloved. 

  • Mon/Wed: 12:30pm -7pm
  • Tu/Th/Fri/Sat: 8:30am-3:30pm

As a Captain in the Army Reserves, the Treats for Troops initiative is particularly special for Dr. Michelle Callahan.  Through serving as a dentist in the Reserves, Dr. Callahan helps soldiers maintain their readiness to deploy and serve the country.  Although the candy collection gesture may seem small, it is a wonderful way to remind our men and women in the Armed Forces, as well as veterans of all eras, that we are all thankful for the service and sacrifices they have provided for our country and our families.

In 2019, Dr. Michelle Callahan joined her father, Dr. Paul Callahan’s dental practice.  Dr. Paul Callahan has been practicing dentistry in Garden City for 35+ years.  The Drs. Callahan are looking forward to giving back to the members of the armed services.
