Student volunteers from the Dental Assistants Association prepared hundreds of dental hygiene kits for the families served by our Fostering Hope Initiative (FHI). Each box contained toothbrushes, dental floss, toothpaste, and other oral hygiene necessities generously donated by the Oregon Dental Hygienists Association.

Jill Lomax and Linda Kihs (pictured) were instrumental in procuring all the products that were identified as a priority need for vulnerable children and families in our community. Jill and Linda both commented on the joy and satisfaction both organizations had in putting together these much needed products knowing the donation would be put to the best use by those we serve.  Many thanks to the assistants and hygienists whose generosity and volunteerism put smiles on all of our faces.
