Wellspring Women's Center:
The Wellspring Women's Center is a drop-in center for low-income women and their children established to foster the innate goodness and self-esteem of all who enter its doors. We support their mission by providing on a continuous basis daily oral hygiene supplies because we believe mouths are the gateway to our bodies.
Annually we collect donations for their The Christmas Store Program, guests are able to shop' and select gifts for themselves and their children. These donated gifts make the holidays brighter for their guests.
Calling all Trick-or-Treaters!
All the kids (and some parents) had their costumes and candy bags ready for this fun, safe, and FREE daytime event! Trick-or-Treat around the local Midtown shops and businesses was a huge success. Our staff supported this midtown event by dressing up as well and giving out toothbrushes.
Smiles For Kids Annual Event
What an awesome day! We helped children "in our own backyard" receive services their families could not afford. Our hearts broke seeing the dental disease these child live with daily;bombed out teeth, abscesses and severe decay. We made a difference thanks to the many volunteers who helped. YOU ROCK! As we have over the years we are dedicated to helping our community.
JRDF Walk for the Cure! 2012
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. It occurs when the body's immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called beta cells. While its causes are not yet entirely understood, scientists believe that both genetic factors and environmental triggers are involved. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is nothing you can do to prevent T1D, and-at present-nothing you can do to get rid of it.
Perseverance and Hope
Although type 1 diabetes is a serious and difficult disease, treatment options are improving all the time, and people with T1D can lead full and active lives. JDRF is driving research to improve the technology people with T1D use to monitor blood sugar levels and deliver the proper doses of insulin, as well as research that will ultimately deliver a cure.
