Community Dental Clinic
We will be supporting the Community Dental Clinic this year. In 2013, the Free Clinic, Salvation Army, and ARC determined that the number one need in Pinellas County was free dental care. As a result, an independent nonprofit was created to provide free dental care and educationon to low income, uninsured adults, in upper Pinellas County.
To date they have had over 7,500 appointments! The need is growing rapidly and they need our help!
Additionally, our one-time project for the December 5th meeting will be the Suncoast Animal League. This nonprofit animal rescue is one of the most active rescue organizations in the area. In addition to their small facility, they have foster volunteers who help rehab sick animals, and others who open their homes to care for those needing a place when there is just no “room at the inn”.
Their needs range from dog and cat food to cleaning supplies to equipment. Cash is always appreciated too!! At the summer board meeting it was unanimous that we make a one-time donation of needed items and/or monetary donations. What a great way to help them during the Holiday Season!
More information about these organizations will be forthcoming and representatives will attend the September and December meetings.
