Dr. W. Gray Grieve says says overconsumption of sugar is a serious health risk so he'll contribute another buck per pound to a nonprofit group that provides assistance to children who have been removed from their homes because of abuse or neglect.
The candy will be accepted four days after Halloween, November 1-4. Grieve says he loves candy but won't be eating his collection — he'll donate it to troops overseas.
Grieve's goal is 300 pounds of candy. He says he's betting many children will choose money over sugar.
