AADA Head-to-Toe Project: New Orleans

June 19, 2013

The Alliance of the American Dental Association is coordinating a nation-wide community service project in conjunction with the ADA Convention in New Orleans, October 31 and November 1, 2013. Head-to-Toe (H2T), a project that has toured the states since 2011 is making a stop in New Orleans – and we need your help. Through generous giving of the dental community the Alliance hopes to assemble at least 3,000 kits containing a hat, a pair of socks, a tooth brush, toothpaste and personal care items or small toy. The oral health kits will benefit New Orleans through New Orleans METRO; an agency that provides essential services for abused women and children (www.mcwcgno.org). 

Alliance members from across the country are participating throughout 2013 by collecting and packaging items at home and sending them to the AADA Central Office. We invite everyone interested in sharing oral health care with New Orleans to participate – you do not have to be an Alliance member. Donated items or assembled kits can be shipped to the Alliance Central Office any time between now and September 15, 2013.

The Alliance is also collecting items on October 31 and November 1 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Bring your oral health items, hats and socks to the H2T collection center and help us let our host city know “we care about them from Head-to-Toe”.
