The Alberta Dental Association and College and the Alberta Dental Foundation would like to thank all of our Brush-Up Alberta donors – with your help we raised over $11,000 throughout the month of April! And with donations being matched by the ADF, this means a grand total of $22,000 was raised!!
We would also like to acknowledge our generous partners over at Colgate. This campaign has enabled us to donate more than 38,000 oral health kits which will be distributed to Food Banks all over the province. Each oral health kit contains a Colgate toothbrush, toothpaste and floss.
“The Alberta Dental Foundation has been a fantastic partner of Food Banks Alberta over the last 2 years, keeping the shelves of food banks around Alberta stocked with oral hygiene supplies. Most people think “food” when they think of food banks, but if you are struggling to put food on the table, you will also struggle to purchase basic necessities. “Brush-Up Alberta” has ensured that those in need have had access to oral hygiene necessities that would otherwise not have the means to do so.” Food Banks Alberta
“Behind every oral hygiene kit delivered to Food Banks Alberta is a generous donor who has demonstrated they care about the oral health of Albertans who are enduring a challenging season. The Alberta dental community and many others have rallied together to support this cause which truly shows the collaborative and generous spirit of Albertans.” Dr. Tobias Meiszinger, President, Alberta Dental Foundation
