I hope we can count on you for a special gift to help advance our mission in providing dental care and dental education that improves the health and well-being of children in our community.
Each year, Chicago Dental Society and its foundation donate nearly 100,000 toothbrushes to schools and community groups for children's dental health month. Most of these organizations serve the neediest children and families.
For 2013. we are on track to provide dental supplies to more than 500 schools and community groups, and our foundation is fundraising to provide additional supplies to the schools serving some of the poorest children in Chicago.
As the Chair of the Chicago Dental Society Foundation Board, I assure you that the foundation is committed to expanding its programs and mission of providing access to dental care and dental education.
Make a difference in a child's life today and donate now.
