America's ToothFairy & The Salvation Army's National Headquarters Launch Joint Initiative
America’s ToothFairy and The Salvation Army’s National Headquarters announced a new collaborative initiative to address the issue of pediatric dental disease. Joining efforts to maximize resources and impact on the health of underserved children, this partnership will focus on rescuing children from potentially debilitating, yet preventable, tooth decay through oral health education, awareness building, and expanding access to preventive services and treatment. Below, America's ToothFairy President and CEO Fern Ingber is with David Jeffrey, National Commander of The Salvation Army USA, at the signing ceremony in Washington, DC.
The Salvation Army will also participate in the America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive – a national campaign held throughout February, National Children’s Dental Health Month, to collect toothbrushes, toothpaste and other oral care products for underserved children.
“The Salvation Army is committed to addressing the most basic human needs, of which health is one of the most important,” said David Jeffrey, National Commander of The Salvation Army USA. “We look forward to collaborating with America’s ToothFairy to raise awareness of the devastating impact of pediatric dental disease and to ensure the children and families we serve have access to quality, affordable oral health resources and services.”
We are very proud to partner with The Salvation Army, recognizing their vital contributions to the health and wellness of families across our nation. We can think of no better partner in our effort to serve children and families in need.
