As you may know, I have worked for/served on the board of directors ofan award-winning, high impact non-profit organization called Kids Smiles for #years. Kids Smiles is the only 501c3 non-profit dedicated solely to children’s dental health and providing free care for uninsured children in Philadelphia and neighboring Delaware County. In addition to providing a dental home for children in under-served neighborhoods, Kids Smiles provides oral and overall health education, dental screenings, and other dental care services to children and adults in the community, addressing both health care and health knowledge disparities beyond the walls of their dental centers.
Kids Smiles is a critical resource to the children and neighborhoods they serve, where child poverty rates climb well above the Philadelphia average of 37%. Through their Grin & Share Itprogram, they help families overcome financial barriers to care by providing free dental care for uninsured and under-insured children, benefiting more than 2,000 children each year.
I am committed to the Kids Smiles mission and have dedicated much of my time, energy, and resources to this truly worthy cause. I hope you will join me in supporting their services with a donation to the Grin & Share Itprogram during National Children’s Dental Health Month. Any amount will help bring healthy smiles to children in our community.
