America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive to Benefit Family First Health
Gettysburg, Pa., January 2014 – Designed to raise awareness and collect oral care products for at-risk children and teens, the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive is being held this month, National Children’s Dental Health Month. Donated toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and rinse will benefit Family First Health, an America’s ToothFairy Affiliate non-profit children’s oral health program. Donations can be dropped off anytime between Feb. 7th and Feb. 28th at the Gettysburg Wal-Mart.
The America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive promotes oral health for families across the nation. Local community members can visit their local Wal-Mart® to drop off donated oral care products for local at-risk youth in the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive Box and pick up a free Kid’s Activity Packs. Patrons who donate can share their experience using the hashtag #SmileDrive2014 on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
“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, combined with support from Kid’s Crest® and Oral-B® Stages® products at Wal-Mart and engagement from Family First Health 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.”
