The American Dental Association hosted its annual SmileCon conference in Houston last week, where they celebrated Philanthropy Day through several charitable initiatives.
Each year during SmileCon, attendees participate in charitable activities, learn more about volunteer opportunities, and share their passion for giving back. Philanthropy Day kicked off with a 5K fun run around downtown Houston to support the ADA’s Give Kids A Smile program.
Volunteers packed backpacks with nutritious food, oral healthcare products, and educational materials at the Give Kids a Smile Pack & Give Back Event, a collaboration with the Houston Food Bank’s Backpack Buddy Program. This event resulted in more than 1,000 backpacks for local food-insecure children.
The Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures team also screened more than 200 children during the event.
