Give Back with our Summer Food Drive!
You’ll notice lots of red noses around the office when you come in this month! We’re not just getting ready for Halloween or getting over a cold. We kicked off our summer food drive on May 21st in conjunction with Red Nose Day to combat poverty in our own backyard and worldwide.
Red Nose Day “makes it fun to come together and make a difference.” In 1985, Comic Relief launched in the United Kingdom with a goal of using comedy to raise money and help those leading tough lives around the world. Ever since, Red Nose Day has been working to create world free from poverty.
Red Nose Day has raised over $1 billion globally, and launched in the United States in 2015. “Since 2015, Red Nose Day in America has raised over $60 million to help kids and young people most in need.” With a vision for a just world, free from poverty, Red Nose Day has made it its mission to drive positive change through the power of entertainment.
Poverty isn’t just something that happens in third world countries, there are families in need right here in Cary, NC! With no school lunches during summer break, some parents struggle to feed their children every day, especially in the summer months. With your help, we can help make a difference! Stanley Dentistry has partnered with Western Wake Crisis Ministry to host a summer food drive in conjunction with Red Nose Day! Now through June 30th, bring canned goods or staples to the office during your appointment or if you’re in the area. Please, no refrigerated or perishable foods! We’ll be delivering the items to Western Wake Crisis Ministry each week.
Keep up with our progress on Facebook and through all of our social media channels. We, here at Stanley, want to be a part of ending the hunger crisis in America. Will you join with us? Your donations will be helping those in need right in our own backyard.
Join us and help fight poverty in Cary and central North Carolina!View All News
