Wal-Mart collects oral hygiene supplies for America’s ToothFairy
Designed to raise awareness and collect oral care products for at-risk children, the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive will be held this February, National Children’s Dental Health Month. Community members can donate toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and rinse to benefit Just Kids Dental, an America’s ToothFairy Affiliate at the Vision Center in Wal-Mart in Superior through the end of the month.
“Each child we serve at our school clinics — where they receive sealants, fluoride, cleanings — can take home a small toy when they’re done,” explains Stacey Anderson, JKD CEO/Founder. “We have had children ask if they can take a toothbrush instead for a brother or sister at home. The need is out there. It’s real and it means the world to us Wal-Mart is helping us collect more supplies at this time.
“We are so grateful that Wal-Mart, an America’s ToothFairy Proud Underwriter, is helping to ensure children across the nation benefit from our National Children’s Dental Health Month campaign,” said Fern Ingber, NCOHF President & CEO. “Their participation in the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive, and engagement from Just Kids Dental will help promote healthy smiles for all children while helping to give at-risk youth the tools they need to prevent the pain and embarrassment associated with tooth decay.”
