Once again our Sharing Smiles event left us smiling! In addition to our staff, we had family members, friends and even some patients come and volunteer with us this last Saturday, March 19. We were able to see over 40 patients and donate over $14,000 worth of dental care to them! We also collected food and cash donations for the Hartford Food Pantry and we will continue to accept these donations through Tuesday, April 5th. It’s such a wonderful gift to give back and we appreciate the opportunity to do so.
We couldn’t have done it without the help of our volunteers, as well as some other local businesses who have been Sharing Smiles with us for years! Thanks to Perc Place, Sal’s Pizza and The Coffee Trader for providing food and drink to keep our volunteers full of energy and able to keep going! Another thanks goes out to Signworks who has donated the banner and the new lettering each year to maximize the exposure our Sharing Smiles event receives. Lastly, thanks to Wittenberger Bus Service. They donated a bus for us to use so that we can temporarily expand our waiting room and make sure everyone has a warm and dry place to sit while waiting to receive dental treatment.
Sharing and Smiles are two things that we feel pretty strongly about. After all, that’s our mission. During these events we are reminded of how blessed we are. We are so grateful to our staff, our families, our patients and our community for supporting us and giving us the opportunity to be Sharing Smiles with all of you! Thanks!
