From: Altrusa International of Yaquina Bay – Making Kids Smile
Over 1,700 dental kits were delivered to kindergarten through third-grade students last week. This year, we included an educational coloring and activity book for the kids. Our goal is to teach children good oral hygiene at a young age so they have a lifetime of healthy mouths.
A big thanks goes to the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund for their generous grant to help us with our Something to Smile About project.
We also want to thank JC Market in Newport for their generous support and the Lincoln County School District Facilities & Maintenance for providing use of their facility to assemble the deliveries.
Altrusa International of Yaquina Bay is dedicated to improving the lives of women and children in Lincoln County through literacy, social & health services, and educational opportunities. For more information or to attend a meeting, call Doretta Smith, Club President at 541-961-6688.
