NCDHM Preschool Visits (February)
Every year during National Children’s Dental Health Month we visit preschools and daycares around our area. During each of our visits we perform a skit, sing songs, and teach little ones about the importance of good oral health.
Dutch Garden Delivery to Senior Living Facilities (April/May)
For the Spring season we spread Spring cheer by delivering beautiful blooms/dutch gardens to nursing homes and senior living facilities around our area.
Candy Buy Back (October)
Each year on the Wednesday after Halloween we buy back unopened Halloween candy from kids ages 2-18. We pay $1 per pound up to 5 pounds. All candy is either donated to our troops or to community outreach centers in our area. Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes and write notes to our soldiers while they come to donate candy.
Operation Christmas Child (November)
We work with Operation Christmas Child (an arm of Samaritan’s Purse) to send shoebox presents to kids in need around the world. Patients have the opportunity to buy a “pre-packaged” shoebox that is then transported to packing centers where they are then shipped out. Each shoebox includes hygiene items, notebooks, coloring books, crayons, and toys.
