It has been weeks since the destructive winds and rains of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria & Jose made landfall in Texas, Florida, The Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and other U.S Territories. The gale force winds ripped the roofs off of homes, uprooted trees and brought down power lines. Many members of our nation suffered crippling losses from these storms.
Though local businesses and infrastructure have been critically damaged, the residents that call these devastated communities home have shouldered the heaviest toll. The foundations of houses that withstood the rain were critically damaged from the rising waters. Fallen limbs and trees smashed cars and roofs. The homes that are left standing need to be completely gutted due to the risk of mold. We, like so many are thankful for the many organizations and charities from across the country that have pledged their support to our community, however our neighbors in need require assistance NOW and we want to do our part in supporting them.
The Smile Nation is dedicated to the idea of spreading smiles across the nation. It is in these times of need that it becomes most imperative to do our part to help bring smiles to our neighbors and fellow citizens when they need a helping hand. With your assistance, The Smile Nation can help provide essential supplies to those who have lost everything in the aftermath of the storms.
Will you help The Smile Nation spread Smiles Across the Nation?
Here are a few ways that you can help:
• A donation of unopen personal hygiene or oral hygiene supplies (ex. Toothbrush, floss, toothpaste, mouthwash, deodorant, brush, comb, washcloths, shampoo, soap, etc)
• A donation of non-perishable food items and water
• A donation of new clothing items for all sizes/gender/age, small toys, baby/children’s items
Any amount you decide to donate will be very much appreciated and will make a huge difference in the lives of our neighbors whose lives have been upended. Together, we can help restore our great cities back to the places that we all know and love.
