By the end of the day do your teeth feel a little funky? What if you didn't have a toothbrush or any way of getting one? The old finger over the teeth trick leaves a lot to be desired and a lot still on your teeth. Most homeless have a hard time getting and keeping things like a toothbrush. They don't have a cute little cup holder on their sink for that. Oral health is a vital part of overall health, form the obvious needs like chewing to the more hidden issues like heart disease.
Your gift will enable us to provide free toothbrushes to the homeless. Every day we have a line of people waiting for our free shower program, and part of that program is providing hygiene supplies like toothbrushes. Poor oral health can lead to some serious medical problems including infections and heart disease. By simply being able to brush their teeth, our clients can help avoid some of these serious issues and greet the day with a bright smile
