Bethany To Re-launch Mobile Dental Service In The Quad Cities This Year
The Give Kids a Smile Program is back after nearly 2 years. Everything gets started today with some amazing volunteers.
Today from 10 a.m. to noon at Bethany for Children & Families United Way volunteers from its annual Day of Caring will assemble dental health kits and clean and sanitize the 39-foot dental bus. These Volunteers plan to re-launch its Give Kids a Smile mobile dental clinic, after nearly two years of pandemic-related closure.
